Further information

The aim of the Cardiovascular Biology course is to provide broad-based training in biomedical research with a focus on cardiovascular science.

The major themes will include an introduction to cardiovascular development and the programming of cardiovascular disease, organ function and dysfunction, and the cardiovascular system in reproduction and inflammation.

The intention is to provide an integrated view of the cardiovascular system in terms of physiology and pathology, with input from basic and clinical scientists.

Students who follow this programme will:

have a thorough knowledge of the relevant literature, and the ability to make a critical appraisal of its key material;
be able to plan, execute and report their research work and place it in the context of the relevant literature;
be able to accurately report the work already done and its significance.

Students will attend research seminars and tutorials led by senior clinical and basic scientists, conduct research projects in the internationally renowned laboratories of the Centre for Cardiovascular Science and extend their communication skills through delivering research-orientated presentations.

Students will also develop skills in the critical reading of the scientific literature and in the writing of scientific reports.
