Medical Sciences

The programme gives you an opportunity to conduct an independent research project. You can work in a wide range of areas. Our current students are researching topics as diverse as interstitial lung disease, cystic fibrosis, care of the newborn infant, and the development of new methods for analysing cell-to-cell interactions in tissue using a micro-fluidic based approach. Throughout your degree, you will be supervised by a leading expert in the field and supported by a thesis advisory panel. As a student at HYMS, you will also take part in our Postgraduate Training Scheme (PGTS), which provides you with extra opportunities to develop both specialist and transferable skills.
