Intercalating is your chance to discover what interests you both personally and professionally. It’s an opportunity to take stock, look beyond the core medical curriculum and turn your attention to specialist skills and topics. Intercalating in Molecular Medicine is an investment in your future career. With us, you will develop the transferable skills you need to help you complete your medical degree, and enter your chosen field.
The MSc in Molecular Medicine gives you the opportunity to develop as a scientist or scientifically-literate clinician through an advanced understanding of the molecular basis of many diseases and their treatments.
You’ll study how to apply molecular approaches to the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of a range of cancers, chronic, autoimmune and genetic diseases. You’ll also carry out a research project in one of these areas within a research group at the forefront of the field. Project supervision is assured by outstanding academics and clinicians working on cutting-edge research.
This flexible course allows you to develop core scientific skills and follow your professional interests with a choice of optional modules. You’ll be part of a world-renowned School and will be taught by internationally recognised scholars.
The Programme Leader is Dr Thomas Hughes. The Programme Coordinator is Dr Audrey Zannese. They will be happy to answer any specific queries about course content.
