MRes in Vision Research

MRes in Vision Research

This is an exciting new programme at the Institute of Ophthalmology, world renowned for the translation of basic biomedical research into new therapeutic advances in eye disease. A unique feature of the programme is a substantial empirical research project encompassing two-thirds of the course, therefore giving students the opportunity to develop their fundamental research skills in a world-renowned research environment and alongside world leading experts. This will be supported by core teaching in research methods and development. In addition, the programme will consolidate fundamental knowledge of the eye as an integrated visual system. Overall, the programme will develop the skills and expertise required to further career progression or to undertake a PhD programme in the field of biomedical research.

What will I learn?

Students will develop key transferable personal and professional skills to independently conduct an extended empirical research project supervised by world-leading experts in the field of vision research. Students will also learn about the fundamental biology of the eye in health and disease, providing key knowledge to support their research project.
