MSc in Molecular Medicine

There has been an enormous growth in our understanding of how basic biological processes take place at a molecular level in recent years. This has been exemplified most notably by the sequencing of the human genome. These developments are continuing at an explosive pace and with them comes an ever sharper focus on the essential molecular mechanisms underlying the normal functioning of cells, tissues and organisms themselves. Molecular Medicine is a new field that exploits advances in molecular and cellular biology to characterise how normal cellular processes either fail, or are subverted, in disease. Increasingly, medical practitioners, professionals and researchers in the health and life sciences need to be able to understand and evaluate advances in molecular medicine in order to keep abreast with developments in their fields. The M.Sc. in Molecular Medicine programme offers a comprehensive and thoroughly up to date overview of the area, provided by experts in their fields. It will provide participants with the knowledge to evaluate the literature and perform independent research.
