The aim of the Cardiovascular Biology programme at The University of Edinburgh is to give you a broad-based training in biomedical research, with a focus on cardiovascular science. This includes an introduction to cardiovascular development, the development of cardiovascular disease, organ function and dysfunction, and the cardiovascular system in reproduction and inflammation.
This is the ideal programme for high-calibre students who wish to progress to a PhD in cardiovascular science.
- You will attend research seminars and tutorials by senior clinicians and basic scientists, and conduct three research projects in the internationally renowned laboratories of the Centre for Cardiovascular Science.
- You will also deliver research-orientated presentations and gain skills in critical reading of scientific literature and in the writing of scientific reports.
- Students produce written reports from each of their research projects, which are assessed by two of the Centre’s PIs. The research supervisor also contributes a mark based on performance in the laboratory.
