Your placement will be in one of the best Medical Sciences programs in the U.K., The Institute of Medical Sciences (IMS) or The Rowett Institute, alongside world-class research groups. You will be welcomed by a senior member of our faculty, who will look after all students, and by your project supervisor. Choose from a range of biomedical science, molecular, cell and developmental biology projects. You will be trained in current research techniques and will benefit from a range of workshops to cater to the differing interests of the students. These workshops will also allow faculty to speak to students one-on-one, to discuss their progress and to ensure they have regular pastoral support during their stay in Aberdeen.
The IMS is home to several world-class research groups including the MRC Centre in Medical Mycology and the Aberdeen Centre for Arthritis and Musculoskeletal Health. The Rowett Institute is a world leader in healthy eating, human nutrition and how it can help prevent disease.
Both institutes are located on a clinical site alongside one of the largest hospital and university complexes in Europe.
