This Genetics and Multiomics in Medicine course from University College London (UCL) uniquely combines the clinical and scientific expertise within the UCL Division of Medicine to train students in domains that are required by the recent developments in science and medicine but are rarely covered within one course.
It is aimed at students from a wide range of backgrounds, from scientists and statisticians to computer professionals and clinicians. The complex nature of the problems that are tacked by this area of medical sciences would be very appealing to students looking for a challenge.
The skills developed during this programme will form a solid basis for further development and specialisation for careers in academic and industrial research, clinical medical genetics, and bioinformatics.
The programme is designed to teach a wide range of transferable skills: academic writing, scientific presentation, gathering and organising evidence; how to critically analyse data and present a structured argument; how to approach a project, undertake independent research and present findings to a variety of audiences.
There has been an increased demand for skilled professionals within the healthcare industry. Possible career paths include working in large pharmaceuticals, innovative healthcare start-ups or at the newly developed NHS Genomic Medicine Services.
- Students will build a solid theoretical background in classical genetics, biological information flow, variability and the relevance thereof for the understanding of human biology.
- You will be introduced to the latest techniques for sequence analysis and annotation, qualitative and quantitative gene expression and functional assessment.
- Students will have the opportunity to work on real life -omic datasets, therefore learning how to link biological mechanisms to the clinical phenotype.
- You will visit the UCL Genomics Centre, which is a research facility with state-of-the-art genomics technologies, genomics project design and data analysis.
Students are taught directly by researchers from the Centre for Genetics and Genomics based at UCL Royal Free Hospital (Department of Renal Medicine) working on understanding the underlying molecular mechanisms of diseases to ultimately improve diagnostic and treatment for patients.
