The University of Bristol

This is a subject-specialised pathway through the MRes Health Sciences Research for students with a particular interest in renal science and medicine.

The MRes programme aims to give you a firm foundation in biomedical research by enhancing your knowledge, understanding and critical awareness of the scientific method and practical experience in an area related to your interests. Taught units provide intensive training in research methodology, experimental design, statistical analyses and data interpretation. Skills training in verbal and written communication is also emphasised. The Renal pathway also includes the Introduction to Renal Sciences unit to provide knowledge and understanding in this field.

Research projects on this pathway will be renal-focused and will take the form of a fundamental bioscience project, translational research, or an epidemiological population health study (in partnership with the UK Renal Registry). There is an additional option to undertake a clinical placement, shadowing adult or paediatric nephrologists during inpatient and outpatient consultations.
