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.
