The start date of the MRes is September/October each year. A blend of learning and teaching methods are used in order to help students develop a broad range of skills.
The core modules of this Programme are:
Stem Cells, Development & Regenerative Medicine module
Students are introduced to core concepts through a series of facilitator-led workshops focussing on key research publications. Students critically appraise primary research papers and develop the skills required to understand, critique and interpret research findings. Integral to these workshops is the requirement for students to present their thoughts and participate in group discussions with both their peers and academic facilitators.
Research Skills in Biomedical Sciences (RSBS) module
A combination of taught and practical sessions are used to introduce students to the core concepts underlying statistical analysis and study design that support students in handling their own data and critically appraising data published by others.
Advanced Scientific Skills module
A series of taught and practical sessions introduce students to additional core concepts used in Biomedical Sciences such as the analysis and critical appraisal of large data sets. In addition, key principles required to relay research to both a scientific and lay audience are introduced. Students write both a scientific and lay abstract for a published primary paper and give a research presentation suitable for a lay audience. Thus, students develop the skills required to communicate their research to both scientists and non-specialists.
Research Project modules
In the two research projects, students are introduced to a range of laboratory skills gaining valuable practical experience of research methodology, experimental design, data interpretation, viva voce, scientific writing, oral and poster presentations.
Post Graduate Research (PGR) Induction and Training
Students also attend generic and transferable skills training programmes organised by the Faculty of Medicine Graduate School.
