Are you interested in bridging the bench to bedside divide? St George’s, University of London’s Translational Medicine MSc and MRes programmes allow you to do just that, providing you with opportunities to combine blue-sky, exploratory research and transform your findings into patient-focused interventions.
A small course intake provides you with unrivalled access to university resources and support from tutors. Personalised mentorship by course organisers and access to their networks within and around the research and hospital community is a chance to integrate yourself into the scientific hub that sits at the heart of St George’s, the UK’s specialist health university.
During the programme you will have the opportunity to contribute to a translational research programme, develop an advanced understanding of the fundamentals of genetics and genomics, study the principal stages in the development of novel therapeutics, learn about technologies used in biomedical research and how they are deployed to treat patients, and acquire hands-on data analysis skills. This course can also be studied as a Postgraduate Certificate to fit around your work life.
You can tailor this course to suit your interests, choosing either a wet-lab research-focused route or a statistics-focused, research policy-based pathway. In both instances, you have the chance to conduct an extended research project with the MRes that will constitute the majority of your credits.
St George’s is the only UK university to share a campus with a teaching hospital, St George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. This gives students the opportunity to put into practice the interventions and breakthroughs that develop following research conducted in the laboratory. The course addresses the gap between novel research and incorporating new interventions in the clinic.
