Clinical Trials and Stratified Medicine
The programme covers the principles which underpin the emerging science at the interface between genetics and pharmacology and the clinical evaluation of the resultant new medicines. The programme trains researchers, who can break down the barriers that currently prevent discoveries at the bench from being translated into treatments at the bedside. Students gain an understanding of statistical methods used to evaluate the efficacy and cost-effectiveness of new treatments. Students undergo theoretical and practical training, enabling an appreciation of how to apply novel stratified approaches, together with clinical pharmacological, regulatory and ethical principles to the optimisation of future clinical research and therapeutic practice. Opportunities to engage with industrial and clinical scientists, with guest lecturers from the pharmaceutical industry, medical diagnostic laboratories and bioscience business which helps students to understand the science, methodology and terminology used by scientists and clinicians from different disciplines. Students learn to communicate effectively in a multidisciplinary environment, critically evaluate a wide range of scientific data and research strategies and learn how to make a significant contribution to research and treatment in the 21st century. Students learn how all of the above techniques are applied by academic and industrial researchers in the development of new medicines.
