About

The Centre for Discovery Brain Sciences (CDBS) carries out research at molecular, cellular, systems and behavioural levels to understand fundamental mechanisms and pathways relevant to brain and body function in health and disease. The Integrative Physiology (Biomedical Sciences - Centre for Discovery Brain Sciences) programme is offered at The University of Edinburgh.

Overview

CDBS investigators exploit rapid advances in the enabling technologies available from genomics, proteomics, imaging, informatics, and in-vivo analysis to understand the function of gene products at the cell, organ and whole-animal level. They exploit the most appropriate model organisms/systems to investigate the delicate balance between high biomedical relevance (for example human, mouse, rat) and high genetic power (such as C. elegans, drosophila or zebrafish).

In the Integrative Physiology (Biomedical Sciences - Centre for Discovery Brain Sciences) programme at The University of Edinburgh, research focuses on understanding fundamental mechanisms and pathways relevant to human function in health and disease across the life course.

Facilities

Students have access to state-of-the-art laboratories and equipment for all aspects of modern molecular, cellular and systems biology to facilitate their research objectives. These are located both within the Central area campus and at the Little France campus. Extensive collaborations exist with the wider biomedical and clinical communities helping ensure you are supported in a world-class research environment.

Research is mainly funded by grants from the MRC, the BBSRC and industrial companies.

Programme Structure

  • Our MSc by Research in Integrative Physiology is a full-time 1-year research project done under the supervision of a CDBS Researcher. This programme has no formally taught component and is therefore only suitable for highly motivated students with a clear idea of their research interests and goals, with significant theoretical or practical knowledge of a chosen field. An MSc by full-time research provides an excellent training in laboratory research and a strong grounding for further study at the level of PhD. 
  • MSc students will work full-time on their research project with the additional option of taking selected transferable skills courses. Each student will have two supervisors. After 3 months study a short presentation and report of completed and proposed work will be made to the supervisors, and at the end of the year a dissertation will be submitted and assessed for the award of MSc.
