Oxford has made a major contribution to modern molecular medicine and Oxford’s senior scientists have provided significant insights to our understanding of cancer, diabetes, and cardiac, haematological and infectious diseases. There is an opportunity to harness these advances and translate them into therapeutic benefits for patients.
The MSc in Experimental and Translational Therapeutics at the University of Oxford draws on the world class research and teaching in experimental therapeutics at the University of Oxford and aims to provide you with the necessary training and practical experience to enable you to understand the principles that underpin clinical research, and to translate that understanding into good clinical and research practice.
The programme will appeal to health professionals from a variety of backgrounds, including:
- qualified doctors
- specialist registrars in clinical pharmacology or in training for other medical sub-specialities
- clinical research fellows
- graduates working in the pharmaceutical industry or in academic clinical trials

The programme is normally completed in two to three years, but up to a maximum of four years may be taken.
