This intense course focuses on the molecular and genetic factors of human diseases. Understanding those factors is crucial to the development of therapies.
After you’ve completed the non-clinical elements of the MSc in Molecular Medicine, you’ll spend 20 weeks with a clinical team, working on a particular health or disease area.
You could work primarily with either a clinical research team or a clinical practice team – depending on your preferred choice and the availability of attachments.
The course will give you a critical understanding of how molecular medicine is being applied to real problems in a particular clinical area. It is assessed mainly through written coursework and dissertations.
