Postgraduate research

Postgraduate Research in the School of Life Course Science

The inter-disciplinary and world leading research in the School of Life Course Sciences spans landmark life-stages with the origins and understanding of common diseases using experimental medicine approaches encompassing basic sciences (genetics, molecular and cell biology) as well as translational (preclinical and clinical) research.

Our Postgraduate Research is training future leaders in Science and Medicine.

PhD/MD (Res) students can study a range of topics including:

  • The origins and life course of disease at all stages in life

  • Interactions between cause and effect - such as those which link environmental exposure/nutrition and genetics to development of diseases such as diabetes, obesity and allergy

  • Early detection, treatment and prevention of diseases
