Teaching

  • PM-132 Eukaryotic Cell Biology

    This module will provide a broad introduction to fundamental concepts in Eukaryotic cell biology investigating the origins of the cell, cell structure and specialised cells and cells in disease. There will be a general focus on human cells throughout with reference to other organisms when needed. Students will gain practical experience in identification, differentiation of cells from different human and animal species.

  • PM-132C Bioleg Celloedd Ewcaryotig

    Bydd y modiwl hwn yn darparu cyflwyniad bras i gysyniadau sylfaenol ym maes bioleg celloedd Ewcaryotig, gan ymchwilio i darddiad y gell, strwythur y gell a chelloedd arbenigol a chelloedd mewn clefyd. Bydd ffocws cyffredinol ar gelloedd dynol drwy gydol y modiwl, gan gyfeirio at organebau eraill yn ôl yr angen. Bydd myfyrwyr yn cael profiad ymarferol o nodi celloedd, gwahaniaethu rhwng gwahanol gelloedd dynol a rhywogaethau o anifeiliaid.

  • PM-304 Biomolecular Research Project

    *

  • PM-400 Advanced Research Project A

    The advanced research project is a key component of the final year of study, providing students with experience of conducting cutting-edge research in the Institute of Life Science and Centre for Nanohealth over an 9-month period. The project will fall into one of the current medically-related research themes: Biomarkers and Genes; Microbes and Immunity; Devices. Students will employ a range of advanced analytical procedures to investigate a specific topic. In addition, they will gain experience in preparing a research proposal and presenting their data in various formats. Research topics will be assigned that are appropriate to a specific degree title. For example, a Genetics student could be assigned a project investigating gene function in an insect vector of a tropical disease, using the technique of RNA interference. The advanced research project is divided between 2 modules, PM-400 and PM-402. PM-400 includes the following components: (1) Preparation of a research poster, (2) A 15-minute audio recording giving a presentation of the research area, (3) Lab performance and (4) Oral defence of the project in an open viva (20-minute presentation followed by 10-minutes of questions).

  • PMEM104 Reconstructive and Regenerative Medicine

    This module will explore the opportunity, trends and developments in innovation in the Life Science Sector in relation to Reconstructive and Regenerative Medicine. Students will be introduced to the strategic approach for developing partnerships and leading innovation in reconstructive and regenerative medicine.

  • PMND00 Nanomedicine Research Dissertation

    This module builds on the knowledge and skills developed in teaching components in part one of their relevant programme. Students will work independently in order to critically explore and add to the evidence base for a topic of relevance to their area of study within nanomedicine.

  • PMNM01 Regenerative Medicine

    Regenerative medicine is the application of nanotechnology and nanoscience in the process of replacing or regenerating human cells, tissues or organs to restore or establish normal function. This module will explore the basic concepts in stem cell biology, critically review the endogenous repair mechanisms, describe the basic concepts and principles of tissue engineering and relate this knowledge to it application and use within the clinical context.

  • PMNMD0 Postgraduate Taught Masters Dissertation

    Students will have the opportunity to join an established research group to work in a modern and well equipped laboratory or alternatively undertake a suitable non-laboratory based project. In this module the student will be able to gain extensive `hands on¿ specialist expertise in a chosen topic which could be targeted to their future career in the field of mass spectrometry. Please note that the topic choice will be made in conjunction with the supervisor, based upon novelty, feasibility and practical considerations on a 'first come first served' basis. The final approval of the topic rests with the module lead.

  • PMRM00 Introduction to the practice of Medical Physicists & Clinical Engineers in Health Care

    Provides a broad-based overview of the Medical Physics & Clinical Engineering discipline.

  • PMZM12 Regenerative Medicine

    Regenerative medicine is the application of nanotechnology and nanoscience in the process of replacing or regenerating human cells, tissues or organs to restore or establish normal function. This module will explore the basic concepts in stem cell biology, critically review the endogenous repair mechanisms, describe the basic concepts and principles of tissue engineering and relate this knowledge to it application and use within the clinical context.
