The Division of Genetics & Molecular Medicine aims to provide a rich environment for training biomedical scientists and clinical academics in genetics and translational biomedical sciences at all levels. Members of the Division play a major part in teaching on many undergraduate and postgraduate courses. The Division currently a vibrant community of PhD students across in our laboratories.
The Department of Medical & Molecular Genetics offers both an intercalated BSc and student selected component to undergraduate medicine students (current students can find details on the Virtual Campus).

The Division hosts a vibrant community of both clinical and non-clinical PhD students. Our research projects cover a wide variety of topics and methodologies including molecular genetics, statistical genetics, functional analyses and bioinformatics. Students within the Division are well supported and have access to state of the art genomics facilities. A highlight of Divisional activity is the semester based Graduate Programme run by the students. For more details about PhD programmes within the Division, please visit the online prospectus.
