Metabolic and Cardiovascular Disease

In the 1st year, students rotate in the laboratories of 3 different contributing supervisors to give experience of different aspects of ageing and working environments; they attend lectures and seminars to gain a critical understanding of the major topics in their area of research; they choose from a series of lectures and practicals on research methods; they develop a doctoral research proposal, which is assessed along with other elements, for a Master's degree; the cardiovascular research programme trains scientists in cross-disciplinary research related to cardiovascular disease, combining formal training in molecular and cellular biology, physiology of model organisms, human physiology, human genetics, genomics and population health sciences.

Entry requirements

The department considers applications from eligible home and overseas students who already have or expect to obtain at least an upper 2nd class Honours or equivalent in any subject relevant to the programme (including, for example, biochemistry, molecular biology, genetics, physiology, pharmacology, population sciences and related subjects).
