University of Bristol

Molecular Neuroscience

The programme provides intensive training in the neurosciences as they relate to the physiologic function and behaviour of the organism. It builds on the broad research strengths of recognised scientists, particularly in basic and clinical neuroscience, molecular and cell biology, neuroendocrinology, behaviour, neurodegeneration and psychopharmacology. Guest lecturers from other universities bring their specialist and advanced knowledge to the programme. Throughout the programme, basic principles will be taught and illustrated in the context of various brain diseases, including psychiatric and neurodegenerative disorders. A practical and a research project will give you valuable experience in experimental neuroscience. Importantly, tutorials and presentations will also help to develop your communication skills. This programme is organised by the Bristol Medical School and is housed in the state-of-the-art Dorothy Hodgkin Building with dedicated MSc facilities. The MSc will be of interest to those with a medical training who want to diversify into research, and to science graduates who wish to develop their knowledge and skills before embarking on a doctoral research programme. While part-time study is available, this needs to be discussed with the programme director.
