Imperial College London: Clinical Research

Institution Imperial College London
Department Medicine
Study type Taught


The MRes in Clinical Research is an umbrella programme made up of three pathways. You choose to study one pathway from:

For the MRes programme (90 ECTS), you will undertake four core modules, in addition to a fifth elective module that is specific to the pathway you choose. The taught aspect (exams, coursework and practicals) contributes to 30% of the overall mark, with the research aspect (proposal, thesis and oral exam) covering the remaining 70% weighting of the course.

The research project topic will be based on your selected pathway. Past and current project topics include:

Please note that for the Translational Medicine pathway, clinical studies involving human participants typically take longer than the nine months allotted to an MRes project. Therefore, while you will normally be placed with an investigator who is involved in clinical research, the project that you will undertake is likely to be a wet lab or bioinformatic project.

The MRes programme is very closely aligned with the NIHR Imperial CRF
