This Master of Research (MRes) course will prepare you for a thriving career at the forefront of neuroscience, an exciting and fast-paced field of research where new discoveries have the potential to benefit millions of lives.
Neuroscience is an increasingly popular subject to study and is becoming an ever more important area to research given our ageing population. Diseases of old age such as Alzheimer’s, dementia, Parkinson’s disease and stroke are devastating illnesses with poor prognosis.
Psychiatric illnesses such as depression, drug abuse and autism are becoming more prevalent in society but treatment options are limited. It is critical that we develop a better understanding or neurological and psychological illnesses with a view to developing better medications and reducing the development of these diseases.
In this course we bring together Neuroscientists with national and international reputations to deliver cutting edge lectures, workshops and tutorials as well as supervising extended lab research projects. This is a fascinating area to study and our aim is to produce the next generation of highly sought after graduates with the knowledge and skills to become outstanding researchers who will drive future developments in this field.
