Description

Understanding the molecular and cellular mechanisms for disease is an important area of research in the 21st century. Massive steps forward in science, such as the completion of the Human Genome Project, mean that diseases can now be studied at the cellular and molecular level. This will help to understand them, to develop treatments and possibly, in the future, cures.

The MSc in Molecular Medicine draws upon the world-renowned strength of research in biomedical sciences at UEA and on the Norwich Research Park. MSc graduate students will obtain skills that are sought in medical research, the pharmaceutical industry or the health services.

Understanding the molecular and cellular mechanisms for disease is an important area of research in the 21st century. Massive steps forward in science, such as the completion of the Human Genome Project, mean that diseases can now be studied at the cellular and molecular level. This will help to understand them, to develop treatments and possibly, in the future, cures.

The MSc in Molecular Medicine draws upon the world-renowned strength of research in biomedical sciences at UEA and on the Norwich Research Park. MSc graduate students will obtain skills that are sought in medical research, the pharmaceutical industry or the health services.

Part I of the programme is taught through face to face lectures, workshops, problem based learning sessions and hands on experiments in our modern biomedical laboratories. These modules provide the opportunity to learn skills in data analysis, critical evaluation of data, laboratory working and report writing in Molecular Medicine.

Part II of the programme includes a major research project where the student designs experiments and carries out original research in a chosen topic. The project will provide an invaluable training environment to enhance research skills. It is a substantial piece of individual work drawing on knowledge and understanding gained from the taught modules. In preparation for the research project the student, in consultation with the project supervisor, prepares an in depth proposal drawing on the current literature.

As well as learning fundamental theory, the student will develop valuable transferable skills. The University will support this by providing Personal Development Sessions including presentation skills, employability and time-management.

Assessment is through a combination of formal exams, laboratory reports, coursework assignments, presentations and problem based learning sessions. In addition the research project is submitted as a formal bound dissertation and assessed by external as well as internal examination.
