Imperial College London

This course includes all aspects of human reproductive and developmental biology, addressing them from the perspective of the fundamental mechanisms that control these normal physiological processes, and then considering our current knowledge of the most important pathologies.

It is not possible within a period of 15 weeks to consider all possible topics in great depth, so in some parts of the course selected subject areas will be considered, as examples of the understanding that we now have. This course will include consideration of some selected topics of particular interest, to demonstrate how fundamental science can lead to a better understanding of normal and pathological processes in reproduction and development.

This course will comprise three core teaching blocks, a self-directed learning block involving independent and group work, and a 12-week research project.
