This Human Molecular Genetics course from Imperial College London is aimed mainly at science graduates who seek research careers in areas such as fundamental human molecular genetics, genetic factors in human health and disease, or molecular and cytogenetic approaches to diagnosis.
The course is flexible, and updated regularly to reflect important advances in human genetics.
Teaching covers a wide range of topics, including the fundamentals of human genetics, clinical genetics and genomics, together with more advanced topics such as diabetes, cancer genetics, gene therapy, animal models and epigenetics.
Approximately 50% of our students go on to do a PhD, 25% become research assistants/associates, while others go on to jobs in industry or further studies (bioinformatics/ computing, medicine).
Typically one or two students every year enter the NHS in clinical genetics training posts.
