Our Molecular Medicine course provides a fascinating insight into key topics such as cell biology and the workings of the immune system, including case studies of diseases and their treatments.. You’ll also learn about current developments and techniques in biomedical research, gaining the analytical skills necessary for undergraduate study.
This year our Molecular Medicine students will have the chance to explore a wide range of topics from molecular and cell biology in the context of neuroscience. Our tutors will focus on real-life applications and the most recent developments in those areas.
In 2016, our tutors explored the topics of genetics and epigenetics in the context of regenerative medicine, received an introduction to cancer biology and cell biology and the development of cancer treatment.
All our tutors are current Oxford and/or Cambridge PhD students and postdoctoral researchers. You will have the opportunity to learn about their look at original research and our tutors will take you beyond your school curriculum to investigate their subject at a higher level - this is great preparation for university/college study! You may even have the opportunity to learn about your tutor’s original, unpublished research.
Mo, one of our 2017 tutors, is currently a PhD student in Molecular Biology at the University of Cambridge, having previously graduated with a degree in Biomedical Sciences from King’s College, London. He is a cellular neurobiologist and works in a number of fields, focusing on cell biology and neuroscience.
Kristie, one of our 2016 tutors, studied Biochemistry at the University of Glasgow before moving on to do a PhD in Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics at the University of Oxford. She is currently investigating the molecular mechanisms governing prostate cancer progression.
Antonio, who has been tutoring with us since 2015, is completing his PhD in Cardiovascular Sciences at the Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics in Oxford.
This course is ideal for students interested in studying Medicine, Biology or Biochemistry at university, or who simply want to explore science beyond the standard school curriculum. To support our students who aspire to the medical profession, we also run a Life as a Junior Doctor seminar series. These sessions give students the opportunity to explore the joys (and challenges!) of a career in medicine.
