Description

Are you a graduate with a degree in cell and molecular biology, genetics and biochemistry, Biochemistry and/or medical biochemistry, pharmacy, medical engineering or physics? Do you have aspirations to apply this knowledge in the medical or life sciences field? Enhance your career prospects by studying Nanomedicine, interfacing with clinical medicine, pharmaceutics, regenerative medicine and nano(geno) toxicology .

Increasing demand and awareness of nanotechnology applications in Medicine has lead to the emergence of Nanomedicine. Capitalising on the 22M infrastructure investment in the Centre for Nanohealth (CNH), the course delivered by a group of world leading research scientists in the number one medical school for research environment in the UK. Joined by clinicians, industry leaders and experts in research innovation and technology transfer, the MSc in Nanomedicine offers a unique opportunity to study and play a role in the significant contributions that nanotechnology is bringing to advances in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disease.

Suitable for anyone with a life sciences facing degree who is targeting industry facing employment in pharma or research careers through PhDs, students will tackle nano-enabled innovation in molecular medicine, drug development, advanced drug delivery and imaging/diagnostics. Pharmaceuticals and advanced therapeutics is embedded across these themes. In addition we have two focus areas, being Regenerative medicine (incorporating biomaterials) and nano(geno) toxicology which map to the core research themes of the School. These areas are furnished by expertise from the colleges of engineering and science, culminating in a multidisciplinary laboratory based research project underpinned by dedicated statistics/informatics modules and research design/ethics.

WHY NANOMEDICINE AT SWANSEA UNIVERSITY?

You will be taught by world leading academics and research scientists bringing together disciplines including engineering, science and medicine in the our world class research facilities, the Institute of Life Science. Nanomedicine students will engage with clinicians through established partnerships with local Health Boards whilst benefiting from access to our £100million Institute of Life Science, which is 1st in the UK for Research Environment and 2nd in the UK for overall Research Quality (REF 2014).

Joined by clinicians, industry leaders and experts in research innovation and technology transfer, the MSc in Nanomedicine offers a unique opportunity to study and play a role in the significant contributions that nanotechnology is bringing to advances in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disease.

Through close relationships with the British Society for Nanomedicine we will give our top students the opportunity to study abroad in line with our international strategic partnerships. Many of our students have progressed to study Graduate Entry Medicine, or gone into research roles to complete a PhD. The close multidisciplinary relationships with research projects such as PATROLS, CALIN and the Institute of Life Science allows our students to establish relationships and network with academics across the breadth of research in the Medical School.

Programme Funding

We offer a wide range of scholarships and bursaries for both taught and research courses to help you fund your study.

Student Destinations

A postgraduate degree is designed to equip our graduates with transferable skills that are highly valued in the workplace. Our research-led ethos ensures that students explore the frontiers of scientific knowledge, and the intensive practical components provide rigorous training in cutting edge technical skills that are used in the modern biosciences (scientific or clinical research career in the fields of nanomedicine and advanced therapeutics) while working in areas of world-leading expertise within the School.

The nanomedicine course appeals to all sectors in life sciences. We have students who have left the course and gone onto industry, academia (PhDs) and professional vocations.  Most do stay on in academia; some do a PhD in a more specific field related to nanomedicine, others go on to Graduate Entry Medicine.  Some have gone onto industry, with a range of biopharmaceutical to biotechnology companies in the fields of drug/technology testing and development.
