The aim of the Cardiovascular Biology course is to provide broadly-based training in biomedical research with a focus on cardiovascular science. The major themes will include an introduction to cardiovascular development and the programming of cardiovascular disease, organ function and dysfunction, the cardiovascular system in reproduction and inflammation. The intention is to provide an integrated view of the cardiovascular system in terms of physiology and pathology, with input from basic and clinical scientists.
Students who follow this programme will:
* have a thorough knowledge of the relevant literature, and the ability to make a critical appraisal of its key material;
* be able to plan, execute and report their research work and place it in the context of the relevant literature;
* be able to accurately report the work already done and its significance.
Students will attend research seminars and tutorials led by senior clinical and basic scientists, conduct research in the context of multidisciplinary research groups in internationally renowned laboratories and develop their communication skills through delivering slide presentations and writing reports and a dissertation.
The programme is intended for high-calibre students with a biological science, medical or veterinary background. The programme serves as an excellent introduction to research in the UK for overseas students intending to proceed to a PhD in this country. Students should therefore have a minimum of a 2:1 honours degree in a relevant biological discipline (or a medical/veterinary qualification) or its equivalent if outside the UK, and have a good grasp of written and spoken English.
