The MRes in Molecular Microbiology is one of a suite of MRes programmes. It provides a springboard into a career that involves a working knowledge of scientific research in academia and industry. It is designed for graduates with a BSc in the life sciences and is also suitable for graduates from other science disciplines and for intercalating and fully qualified MBBS or BDS students. The MRes can be taken either as a stand-alone qualification or act as an entry route onto a PhD or MD.
The MRes is a research-based qualification with a taught component that is of an equivalent standard to an MSc. It provides training in contemporary medical and molecular biosciences through subject-knowledge modules related to and including medical microbiology, professional and key skills training and a 24-week laboratory-based research project.
The programme enables you to experience an internationally competitive research area, predominantly in academia but also potentially in industry. If you register for an integrated MRes/PhD, MRes/MD or MRes/DDS you will be allocated projects that are relevant to your proposed PhD or MD, or DDS programme.
A subject-based module in molecular microbiology focuses on how model organisms representative of the diversity of the bacterial sub-kingdom are helping to elucidate central biological questions, such as the control and regulation of cell division and of gene expression.
