MA The Classical Mediterranean 古典地中海
详情
课程周期: 12个月
申请状态: 开放
添加到我的计划

简介

This programme offers an intensive and challenging forum for tracing, debating and interpreting the archaeology and history of the Classical Mediterranean world across the Greek and Roman periods (approx 7th Century BC to 5th Century AD), as well as investigating its reception in the modern world. The course moves away from traditional art-historical and structuralist approaches, and from traditional narratives of emergent and developing powers in the Classical Mediterranean, to question the ways in which we reconstruct the classical past, to identify the interplay and debate between sources (physical and written), and to interrogate current understandings and perceptions of Greek and Roman societies across the span of the Mediterranean. Our integrated exploration of texts and material culture within a range of spatial and landscape contexts enables far fuller recognition of the societies and economies that shaped classical antiquity. Specific goals are to provide you with a high level of competence in the cultures of the Greek, Hellenistic and Roman Mediterranean, by exploring chosen specialist subjects, to: Develop methodological expertise in critical use of source materials. Identify current theoretical approaches used in Greek and Roman studies. Enable you to reflect critically on the economic, social, political, cultural, artistic and religious developments and interactions between the various regions and powers of the Classical Mediterranean. Develop your ability to conduct independent research. Build your awareness of the potential of interdisciplinary research.

课程周期: 12个月
申请状态: 开放
添加到我的计划

简介

Discoveries in cell and molecular biology underpin most of what is known about the development of cancer. Analysis of alterations in diverse cell functions including cell communication, cell division, cell metabolism, cell movement, genetic modifications and changes in gene expression are central to our understanding of the disease and ultimately its treatment. Cancer Research UK logoOur MSc in Cancer Cell and Molecular Biology (CCMB) will provide you with a unique opportunity to learn about the contemporary approaches to cancer research from some of the leading researchers in the country within the newly designated Cancer Research UK centre at Leicester. This is a practically-orientated, full-time Masters Degree comprising four months of intensive, taught laboratory work supplemented with lectures, workshops, tutorials and seminars. This is followed by a eight-month, independent laboratory research project; you will be able to choose a cancer or molecular/cell biology project in an area that you find particularly interesting. During your project you will have the opportunity to apply the theory and practical training which you acquired in the taught phase of the course. While developing your understanding of the cellular and molecular processes and techniques in cancer research, you will also learn how to critically analyse research data and articles and how to communicate complex scientific concepts and processes. This Masters Degree will provide you with cutting-edge knowledge and practical training in those aspects of cell biology, molecular genetics and histopathology which are required to understand the current approaches to cancer research. This training will provide you with an ideal platform for pursuing further research at PhD level or for a career in medical biosciences or a related field.

简介

Launched in 2014, this exciting course is designed to equip future scientists and clinicians with the fundamental knowledge to make a difference in the understanding and treatment of cancer. Run and delivered by the same team that trained more than 300 graduates over 20 years on our previous Masters Degree in this field (Msc in Molecular Pathology and Toxicology), this new postgraduate course will enable you to gain a mechanistic understanding of cancer biology and use it to analyse risk, prevention, diagnosis, prognosis and therapy of cancer. Building on a foundation in cancer cell biology, the translational element of the course will consider the design of treatment modalities, including: radiotherapy mechanisms of action of anti-cancer drugs therapy resistance biomarker discovery and use cancer chemoprevention anti-cancer target discovery and validation clinical trials imaging cancer epidemiology biostatistics A key component of the course will be a six-month laboratory research project, which will give you an opportunity to study one of these areas in more depth. The research experience gained during this project is particularly valued by employers in industry and by potential PhD supervisors. The MSc in Molecular Pathology and Therapeutics of Cancer will train you in advanced molecular and cellular biology skills, which can be applied to research into cancer diagnosis and therapy, considered useful at higher education facilities and by industry. This is achieved by advanced level instruction and education into the theoretical aspects of molecular pathology and cell biology within the context of cancer, as well as providing you with the laboratory and analytical skills that can then be put into practice in the research project phase of the course and which is particularly valued by future employers.

添加到我的计划

简介

Biomedical engineering is a scientific discipline that advances knowledge in chemistry, engineering, biology and medicine, and improves human health through multidisciplinary research that integrates the engineering sciences with the biomedical sciences and clinical practice. Over the last few years there has been a major paradigm shift in both Europe and the United States, away from traditional schemes of health care towards health care systems which are much more dependent on technology. This is true in terms of diagnosis, treatment and health care system integration. The skills and training you gain on this course will allow you to apply engineering principles and materials technology to healthcare, to understand the design and manufacture of medical equipment, and to consider ethical principles that underpin medical engineering, regulatory issues and governance.
