Routinely, between 60% - 80% of our students have undertaken PhD programmes worldwide after completion of the MRes in Biomedicine.
Here are some testimonials from past students of the course.
Gehad Youssef- MRes 2008- 2009 currently PhD at UCL Institute of Child Health
I undertook the MRes Biomedicine degree in the academic year
(2008-2009). I found the course very engaging and exciting. What
appealed to me most was the 9 months laboratory component of the course.
I completed the mini project (Title: Mucosal immunity to Neisseria
meningitdis) under the supervision of Dr Mona Bajaj-Elliott. My Maxi
project (p53, SHP-1, TrkA, and phosphorylated TrkA (Y674/Y675),
expression in primary ductal and lobular breast carcinoma) was conducted
under the supervision of Dr Ximena Montano.
We also undertook courses in Research Ethics and Professional development. Moreover, Professional Development was assessed by a portfolio that demonstrated our development throughout the MRes. The MRes has helped me to prepare to undertake a PhD by providing the opportunity to think as an independent researcher and enhancing my confidence to work in the laboratory. Importantly, the maxi-project has allowed me to gain authorship in two research publications.
I would absolutely recommend the MRes Biomedicine course to any student wishing to embark on a research career.
