The MSc in Reproductive Medicine: Science and Ethics is for students who wish to gain an advanced education and practical training within the context of a medical issue that affects one in six couples wishing to start a family.
This programme provides you with a deep and broad overview of the modern practice of reproductive medicine. With interactive laboratory based sessions you gain the practical, academic and research skills that are used in academia and the clinic and learn how these can be applied to the development of new therapies. This programme will be of interest to prospective researchers, clinical embryologists, clinical scientists or individuals simply interested in reproductive medicine.
The MSc is taught by world-leading academics at the University of Kent and leading industry practitioners from the London Bridge Fertility Centre.
The School of Biosciences is among the best-funded schools of its kind in the UK, with current support from the BBSRC, NERC, MRC, Wellcome Trust, EU, and industry. It has 40 academic staff, 56 research staff (facility managers, research fellows, postdoctoral researchers and technicians), approximately 100 postgraduate students and 20 key support staff. The school's vibrant atmosphere has expanded to become a flourishing environment to study for postgraduate degrees in a notably friendly and supportive teaching and research environment.
Research in the School of Biosciences revolves around understanding systems and processes in the living cell. It has a strong molecular focus with leading-edge activities that are synergistic with one another and complementary to the teaching provision. Our expertise in disciplines such as biochemistry, microbiology and biomedical science allows us to exploit technology and develop groundbreaking ideas in the fields of genetics, molecular biology, protein science and biophysics. Fields of enquiry encompass a range of molecular processes from cell division, transcription and translation through to molecular motors, molecular diagnostics and the production of biotherapeutics and bioenergy.
In addition to research degrees, our key research strengths underpin a range of unique and career-focused taught Master’s programmes that address key issues and challenges within the biosciences and pharmaceutical industries and prepare graduates for future employment.
Kent is moving forward with the Kent & Medway Medical School (KMMS), due to take the first cohort of students in September 2020.
The Medical School will be a significant addition to the University, with exciting opportunities for education and research in the School of Biosciences.
