Research Project

Research Project




Students will be offered projects by internationally renowned research groups from the Schools of Biochemistry and Cell Biology, Microbiology, Anatomy and Neuroscience.

Through our partnership with EMBL, students may also complete their 6-month project in any of their 5 sites accross Europe.  

 There are three primary research themes;

-Cancer Biology


-Molecular Neuroscience

Each student will complete a six-month project based on individual research in one of these themes. On completion, results will be compiled in a research dissertation. Students will not only gain invaluable hands-on, practical experience in experimental design, implementation, and interpretation but also develop a wide array of transferable skills including written and verbal communication; data recording, analysis and presentation; critical evaluation of published material; ability to work in collaboration with others, as well as independently; and project and time-management.
