About

The Biological Science (Sanger Institute) programme offered by the University of Cambridge is a one-year full-time research MPhil. Assessment is by submission of a thesis and an oral examination. Students start in October, with the submission of the thesis.

Overview

The MPhil in Biological Science (Sanger Institute) offered by the University of Cambridge aims to provide research opportunities in the field of genomic science that reflect the unique nature of Sanger Institute science, with an emphasis on large-scale, high-throughput approaches and the development of a blend of wet-lab and computational skills.

Applicants will generally have a bioscience background, but applicants with a computational or mathematical background can also apply.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the MPhil, students will be expected to have acquired a detailed understanding of the relevant areas of genomics that underlie their research project and write a thesis on their work. They will also be expected to have attended courses or lectures on general research and transferable skills, covering subjects such as bioinformatics, statistics, ethics, research integrity, scientific writing and presentation skills, together with the Institute’s Graduate Student Lecture Series and student journal club.

Programme Structure

Teaching
  • Students are supervised by their faculty member and postdoctoral scientists within the team. Discussions are provided on a daily basis at the bench and weekly during lab meetings and journal clubs.
  • The Institute also aims to provide students with general research and transferable skills training in addition to training in their specific research area.
