The module aims to examine advanced bioanalytical techniques that are used in biomedical research, for the analysis of products, for improving diseases understanding and for the analysis of disease biomarkers. It also provides a detailed understanding of the principles, theory and practice of bioanalytical techniques.
The module aims to provide insight into a range of ethical and legal issues that relate to professional practice, to research with human and animal subjects. It will also aim to give students a broad overview of the relevant current UK ethical and legal regulations for research using human tissues.
This module aims to provide students with sound knowledge of the means of controlling the transmission of, and exposure to, infectious agents, the means through which the human body limits infection by the innate and adaptive immune response and the theoretical and practical aspects of immunization and antimicrobial chemotherapy.
The module aims to provide students with the tools required to design effective and efficient experiments and to test scientific hypotheses. The module will also equip students with the tools necessary for statistical analysis in a hypothesis testing context.
This module aims to provide students with sound knowledge of the transmission, epidemiology and pathogenesis of human infectious diseases. This will allow students to understand how infectious agents disseminate within communities and the mechanisms by which they cause disease.
This module aims to provide students with a sound knowledge of the structure and function of infectious agents. This will allow students to understand how structure and function influences how infectious agents replicate, how they are transmitted and how they can be controlled.
The module aims to provide students with current theories and approaches to leadership and management in order they can bring about effect positive change in the team or organisation that they lead or manage.
Module aims to develop skills in planning and execution of an analytical study and critical evaluation of real research results drawing on their acquired knowledge from other modules. In addition, the module aims to develop student’s communication skills to enable them to communicate their findings in written and oral form.
