The scheme aims to provide a means by which students can gain an in depth knowledge of a particular area of biomedical research and become familiar with general and specific research methods and laboratory practice. This is achieved by 9 months full time work in a laboratory as part of an established research group and some direct learning of research methods by participation in the graduate training programme. This is followed by a 3 month writing up period, when a thesis will be produced, which will be the means by which the degree is assessed.
