The Master of Science (MSc) in Precision Medicine will provide training in the principles of precision and stratified medicine and the clinical impact of individual molecular and lifestyle variability. This course replaces the MRes in Translational Medicine. This course aims to train the next generation of scientists able to fast-track biological and scientific insights into advanced therapies and diagnostic tools. The MSc course consists of four taught units covering omics principles including genetics, genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics, which together make up the PGCert, plus an extended 35-week project that can be undertaken at the University, the Manchester Cancer Research Centre or a teaching hospital in Greater Manchester. The teaching integrates different omic technologies to enable students to undertake precision medicine research. Students can choose from a range of projects covering areas such as the use of gene expression profiling, proteomics, metabolomics, stem cell research, tissue culture or pharmacogenetics in the biology of diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, infectious diseases, stroke or diabetes. This course is ideal for those aiming to go for a PhD research as well as pursuing a career in academia or the pharmaceutical or biotechnology industries, or as a clinical academic.
