This programme will be delivered by a multidisciplinary team associated with the Centre for Microscopy and Imaging who are involved in many aspects of current basic and medical research. Microscopy, related sample preparation skills, and analysis are now an essential component of the majority of biological science research projects and a necessity for high-impact publications. This MSc programme aims to up-skill participants with practical hands-on microscopy and imaging techniques, associated sample preparations skills and analysis.
A suite of core and optional modules (see online for more details) taught over semesters 1 and 2 will enable students to diversify and broaden their field of knowledge. Students will partake in a substantial research project over the summer months and will depart with translational skills which may then be applied in the work force.
