Cardiovascular

This course explores integrated laboratory-to-bedside research programmes that improve the understanding of human cardiovascular disease and its treatment; it uses a multidisciplinary integrative approach using both in vitro and in vivo models and methods, with a strong focus on translational research and the clinical/basic science interface. The overall research strategy is to pursue laboratory-to-bedside research programmes addressing fundamental molecular, cellular, physiological and pathological mechanisms underlying cardiovascular disease both experimentally and in patients and to undertake high-quality research training of non-clinicians and clinician scientists side by side.

Entry requirements

Good Honours degree in science (2.1 or above) or an overseas equivalent; a 2.2 Honours degree may be considered only where applicants also offer a Master's degree with merit or above.

Sponsorship information
