About Biomedical sciences at Faculty of Science, University of Strathclyde

Research opportunities

The MRes is a research-based Masters degree that offers specialised training in specific areas.

The difference between the MRes and an MSc is that you'll spend more time on a lab-based project, and the final assessment (a thesis) and final award is closer to that for a PhD.

This degree is delivered by the Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy & Biomedical Sciences and offers a vibrant research environment for postgraduate training.

The taught part of your degree will increase your understanding of general scientific skills like statistics, ethics, and effective communication, while also increasing your knowledge in your specific subject through lectures and workshops.

You'll then move on to work on your project in an active research laboratory with a Principal Investigator and, potentially, with post-doctoral fellows and other postgraduate students.

This is an excellent way to find out about what a career in science is really like.

You'll also develop vital technique and project management skills that will prove highly attractive to future employers.

What you'll study

You can study an MRes in the following areas:

  • biochemistry
  • immunology
  • microbiology
  • in vivo sciences
  • neuroscience
  • pharmacology

You'll spend around two-thirds of your time undertaking a single laboratory-based research project, supervised by an academic member of staff.

In addition, you'll take taught classes delivered through lectures, workshops and practical labs in three areas:

  • transferable skills training in data mining, interpretation and presentation; experimental planning; personal effectiveness, commercialisation and entrepreneurship
  • advanced-level techniques, learning practical skills appropriate to the specialisation chosen
  • advanced-level topics, gaining an in-depth understanding appropriate to the specialisation chosen

To support the chosen research project, you'll select advanced-level taught courses in your specialisation.
