Presentación

This programme will equip you with the necessary ethos, critical evaluative skills and technical competence to pursue a research career in the in vivo sciences. Such an approach is essential to understand the complex interactions among body systems, and how these may be modified with adaptations, by drugs, and during pathologies.

Programa

The programme consists of both taught modules (60 credits) and a research project (120 credits) comprising a total of 180 credits for the whole programme.

Integrated Body Systems (20 credits)
This module provides an overview of the function and regulation of the major body systems and their integration to achieve homeostasis. Examples (such as exercise, stress, dehydration) will be discussed and will provide a firm foundation for students to consider scenarios in a problem-based manner to develop understanding of integrative physiology.
Practical In Vivo Research Skills (20 credits)
This module provides practical lab-based experience using both humans and animal tissues to develop experimental design, practical application of skills and data analysis. The students will develop a critical sense of observation in order to refine protocols and data presentation to answer a research question.
Research Methods (20 credits)
This module covers the skills to critically appraise published research and undertake original research. Topics include areas such as application of scientific method, literature search techniques, experimental design. Additionally, an overview of analysis of both quantitative and qualitative data is included in this module.

Salidas profesionales

The skills and knowledge gained on this programme will make you attractive both to employers in the pharmaceutical and related industries, and to major academic research centres. The practical skills and knowledge acquired in design, performing and analysing experiments are highly transferable to a wide range of scientific areas.

Previous students have gone on to study for PhD, graduate entry medicine and teaching. Ashleigh Wilcox went on to study for a DPhil at the University of Oxford.
