Course description

Cell Biology lies at the heart of today's central questions in the biological sciences. Research in Cell Biology is crucial to understand the inner workings of animals, plants and bacteria. It is central to diverse subjects including cell communication, cell division and cell motility. Importantly, our understanding of Cell Biology will undoubtedly help in the quest for treatments for major diseases, including cancer. This programme will give you the unique opportunity to consider the most exciting current problems in cell biology under the guidance of leading experts in Cell Biology.

You will gain training and experience in the concepts and techniques used in cutting edge research in cell biology and it's application in widespread fields of research. Importantly, you will have the opportunity to directly apply these ideas in your research projects. The diverse fields studied and large number of leading researchers employing Cell Biological approaches in Manchester permits you to perform your studies in the area you find most stimulating.  

Through this programme, you will have a unique opportunity to define the mechanisms that define and regulate the function of cells and organisms.

This is a research focused Masters course. We do not teach Cell Biology using a traditional lecture-based format; instead we use an interactive approach where you learn through seminars, workshops, small group tutorials and during your research placements.
