Cardiovascular Health and Disease University of Manchester

The MRes Cardiovascular Health and Disease course at the University of Manchester promotes cardiovascular research within a unique multi-disciplinary training environment. The programme aims to equip students with broadly based biomedical research skills, but with an emphasis on application to cardiovascular science.Cardiovascular diseases are responsible for considerable mortality, disability and a reduced quality of life in the developed world. Despite the large number of treatment strategies, the widespread occurrence of these disorders dictates the search for improved treatments. The development of these relies on a continued evolution of our understanding of the underlying mechanisms responsible for the development of cardiovascular disorders.It is now widely recognised by employers and research councils that unravelling the basis of cardiovascular disease and development of new therapies is a high priority area for investment especially since the economic burden of CVD is increasing. It is also recognised, however, that a gap has opened up between the skills possessed by new graduates and the skills normally expected on entry to a research degree or an industrial research career. The MRes in Cardiovascular Health and Disease has been specifically designed to fill this gap for those who wish to pursue a research career in cardiovascular sciences.

The MRes promotes cardiovascular research within a unique multi-disciplinary training environment. The programme aims to equip students with broadly based biomedical research skills, but with an emphasis on application to cardiovascular science.

Cardiovascular diseases are responsible for considerable mortality, disability and a reduced quality of life in the developed world. Despite the large number of treatment strategies, the widespread occurrence of these disorders dictates the search for improved treatments. The development of these relies on a continued evolution of our understanding of the underlying mechanisms responsible for the development of cardiovascular disorders.

Aims

Research topic examples:

  • Coronary arterial contractility and endothelial function
  • Sick sinus syndrome and gene therapy
  • Can we un-stiffen arteries?
  • Cellular basis of cardiac arrhythmias
  • Elucidation of the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis and vascular occlusion that occurs following stenting and bypass surgery
  • The role of oxidative stress and channelopathies in heart failure
  • Mechanisms of diabetic cardiomyopathy
  • Cell signalling in vascular smooth muscle
  • Cellular dysfunction and EC remodelling in heart disease and ageing

The course is open to medical or science graduates and intercalating medical students.

Normally a BSc (1st or 2:1, though under exceptional circumstances candidates with a 2:2 will be considered), MBChB or equivalent is expected from a British university in an appropriate biological or medical subject. International candidates must have obtained the equivalent of a 2:1 in a related degree from a reputed University.

Candidates on the undergraduate medical programme must have satisfactorily completed years 1-4 of the MBChB with no failure at any examination.
