MSc in Molecular Neuroscience


Welcome to the website of the MSc Course in Molecular Neuroscience at the School of Clinical Sciences.

The MSc in Molecular Neuroscience will provide students with state-of-the-art knowledge of neuroscience.  Lecturers will not only teach basic principles of neuroscience, but will also cover the latest developments in their own field of research.

Throughout the course basic principles will be illustrated in the context of various brain diseases, including psychiatric and neurodegenerative disorders. Through the performance of practicals and a research project students will gain valuable experience in experimental neuroscience.

Importantly, tutorials and presentations will contribute to the further development of communicative skills.

The course builds upon the research strengths of our staff in neuroscience, molecular biology, neuroendocrinology, neurodegeneration and behaviour.  Guest lecturers from other universities bring their specialist and advanced knowledge to the course.

This course is of interest to all students who want to expand their knowledge of neuroscience.  It is hoped that graduates of this course will be well-trained scientists capable of developing and carrying out their own research.

As such, the course will be of interest to those with a medical training who wish to diversify into research, and science graduates who wish to further develop their knowledge and skills before embarking on a doctoral research programme.
