MODULES & LEARNING

Current research publications will be selected for debate each week and you are expected to either present a summary of an article, or contribute to the weekly discussion.

This module begins the process of planning for the research project. You will develop a proposal and participate in a mock ethics approval panel.

The Research Project module (120 credits) will be carried out from the start of Semester 2 to September. Project topics will be closely linked to the areas of research expertise of the team.

Combine theory and practice of many modern analytical techniques that are used in biological, medical and chemical analysis, and learn the important steps in the development and assessment of analytical measures.

With our new dedicated biomedical sciences research laboratory (opened in 2013) you will be able to conduct project work in a dedicated research environment and will benefit from an enhanced range of equipment. You will develop the skills needed for a successful research career.

Your research project will be closely linked to the areas of our research expertise with the opportunity to explore topics such as:

  • the use of molecular methods to detect adulterated food
  • studies on protein expression in bacteria
  • pain science and non drug approaches to pain relief
  • nutritional biochemistry
  • development and validation of ELISA techniques
  • the interactions of pyocyanin with host biochemistry
  • the Effects of Bacterial Metabolism on pH of Simulated Wound Conditions
  • development and Testing of New Smart-Bandage Sensing Technologies.

As a postgraduate student you will work alongside many other students, both undergraduate and postgraduate, and be closely linked to active research work in biomedical sciences. Our teaching team is often highly commended by students and staff for their innovative teaching methods and support for students.
