Summary

Our Stress, Ageing and Chronic Disease MRes provides the opportunity to develop your research skills with internationally recognised researchers working on multidisciplinary projects. Our research examines the role played by stress, inflammation and the natural ageing process in the initiation and progression of diseases such as; cancer, diabetes, neurodegenerative and musculoskeletal disorders.

You will be working within our Centre for Stress and Age-related Disease, focusing on three main areas of research: chemical biology, cell biology and translational science. Learning alongside postdoctoral and other postgraduate researchers with shared interests you will discover how to design and undertake a substantial research project. The project allows you to demonstrate your creativity and initiative and to understand the relevance of scientific research to industry.

You will develop your lab-based skills using our specialist multidisciplinary research facilities, preparing you for employment in industry or further academic study. You will gain further understanding of research literature and the wider research community through our specialist journal clubs with seminars from expert speakers as well as more informal student-led presentations.
