Advanced Biological Sciences mres

Overview

The Institute of Integrative Biology has developed bespoke pathways to MRes awards across all of its research interests, affording applicants the opportunity to develop their own postgraduate degree programmes.

These new programmes can therefore be based around your particular areas of interest. The title of your degree award will reflect your pathway of choice.

Example Pathways

  • Advanced Biological Sciences (Animal Sciences)
  • Advanced Biological Sciences (Bioinformatics)
  • Advanced Biological Sciences (Biotechnology)
  • Advanced Biological Sciences (Cell Signalling)
  • Advanced Biological Sciences (Chemical Biology)
  • Advanced Biological Sciences (Conservation Biology)
  • Advanced Biological Sciences (Evolution and Behavioural Biology)
  • Advanced Biological Sciences (Food Security)
  • Advanced Biological Sciences (Functional and Comparative Genomics)
  • Advanced Biological Sciences (Host: Parasite Biology)
  • Advanced Biological Sciences (Microbiology)
  • Advanced Biological Sciences (Molecular Oncology)
  • Advanced Biological Sciences (Plant Sciences)
  • Advanced Biological Sciences (Structural Biology)
  • Post Genomic Sciences

You will be able to choose from a series of taught modules to ensure that you develop the correct academic background and skills to excel in research. An important component of the programme will be the opportunity for non-native English speakers to take a specially designed module in communication skills. This module is taught by members of our English Language Unit and will be designed to improve your English in a scientific context. Please see www.liv.ac.uk/elu for details.
