Medical Sciences

The School of Medicine supports a Medical Science team, to deliver the science and scholarship elements of the undergraduate curriculum. This team contains a number of world class research scientists covering areas such as neurobiology, parasitology, regenerative medicine, proteomics, orthopaedics, cardiovascular, and cellular and molecular medicine.

The team is closely aligned with the Research Institute for Science and Technology in Medicine and Faculty of Natural Sciences. Opportunities are available for postgraduate laboratory research for short-term periods or towards postgraduate degrees at MSc and PhD level.

We also have a strong Academic Pathway for our undergraduates from academic student selected components, Summer studentships and student research showcases and intercalated master’s degrees, all of which are available to students who wish to develop careers in academic medicine. We work closely with the student body to support student led research clinics and research meetings.

We have a newly-appointed Director of Medical Science to support staff and students as scholars and scientists, and to co-ordinate links with other researchers in the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, and across the wider University.
