Experimental Oral Pathology (Oral Sciences) MSc
Queen Mary University of London
Key Course Facts
This MSc introduces you to the principles of experimental pathology in oral disease. We offer you comprehensive training in the principles of laboratory research methods and the range of techniques used to study the behaviour of oral tissues in health and disease.
Ideal if you want to follow either a career in academic dentistry or in a clinical speciality
Be taught by our distinguished international experts and have regular contact with them throughout the programme
Work as an integrated member of one of our research teams
Attend our annual stem cell conference as well as an HIV symposium
Study at one of the UK’s top-rated dental schools: we are joint first for research impact (REF 2014)
You’ll follow a structured course of seminars, with practical work, dealing with the structure and behaviour of cells and tissues in health and disease. You’ll begin with fundamental concepts of cell biology and continue with the application of these concepts to oral and dental disease. Related disciplines such as oral microbiology and immunology will also be covered.
Throughout the programme, an emphasis will be placed on the evidence base for these concepts and the way in which such evidence is obtained by observation and experiment.
You’ll join one of our research teams and undertake a laboratory-based research project in the final module of the programme, exploring any aspect of oral disease. We’ll introduce you to experimental design and research, so you’re at the very forefront of innovations in this field.
You’ll gain transferable laboratory skills, in addition to those gained as part of your research project. You’ll learn how to write papers and present them to your peers – and for publication.
Running in parallel with your core programme you’ll be invited to attend seminars within the Blizard, across basic science disciplines, genomics, immunobiology, molecular cell biology and neurosciences.
Eight compulsory modules
Research project with a 15,000-word dissertation
