Teaching

  • PM-259 Contemporary themes and techniques in medical sciences

    This module aims to give students an overview of current and emerging themes in medical sciences, both from clinical and laboratory perspectives. This will cover topics generating high media interest, such as the zika virus and alternative methods of transplantation as well as new laboratory techniques. In addition, the module will be supported by two practical classes for which students will be required to conduct mini-projects based around the identification of patient samples and how these are presented as research cases. The module will also involve a one-day "conference", during which students will present data while experiencing a research conference atmosphere.

  • PM-315 Genetic Analysis III

    The module aims to develop the student¿s ability to critically analyse and synthesise advanced research topics in genetics and molecular biology, and their oral and written scientific presentation skills.

  • PM-317 Genetics of Cancer

    This module will provide students with an advanced understanding about the genetic mechanisms involved in carcinogenesis, and how these underlying processes and molecules affect the human body.

  • PMRM00 Introduction to the practice of Medical Physicists & Clinical Engineers in Health Care

    Provides a broad-based overview of the Medical Physics & Clinical Engineering discipline.
