The programme will also provide an excellent platform for progression to PhD programmes either in Queen’s or worldwide.
The MSc in Experimental Medicine will develop a strong fundamental understanding of high quality biomedical research, including experimental design and execution, data management and interpretation, and scientific communication, including publishing, presentation, and use of social media.
The programme offers comprehensive research training with access to over 40 research groups and the state-of-the-art research facilities at the Centre for Experimental Medicine (CEM).

Experimental medicine aims to identify mechanisms of pathophysiology of disease, and demonstrate proof-of-concept evidence of the efficacy and importance of new discoveries or treatments. There is an increasing need for graduates who can undertake basic and clinical research, and translate it into improved medical treatments for patients.
This research-intensive MSc programme in Experimental Medicine will equip you with the rigorous research skills, and the innovative mentality to tackle the major medical and therapeutic challenges of the 21st century.
