This course provides advanced academic, laboratory and research training in modern cellular and molecular immunology, with emphasis on the interface between the basic and clinical aspects of the subject. Four modules are taught over five months, followed by a seven-month research project.

At the end of the seven-month research project, students will have gained excellent laboratory experience, learnt a variety of skills and techniques and produced a thesis.

Key benefits

  • To expose students to a wide range of immunological topics during lectures and projects
  • To provide training in transferable skills required for scientific and medical careers
  • To inspire and enthuse the next generation of scientists

Career prospects: A high proportion of graduates proceed to PhD study, or, if medically qualified, to clinical practice or research. As well as scientific training, the course expands students’ repertoire of transferable skills, allowing them to enter a variety of non-scientific careers including finance, management and various types of consultancy.
