The MSc Translational Pathology (Neuroscience) course combines core teaching of the fundamental aspects of the major nervous system diseases, with significant emphasis on the development of practical laboratory skills encompassing histopathology, molecular pathology and microscopy.
Translational Neuroscience applies findings from fundamental laboratory research relating to brain structure and function to development of new therapies for neurodegenerative, neuropsychiatric and neurodevelopmental diseases.
During this online distance learning course, you’ll study the fundamentals of neuroanatomy and neurobiology and learn how insights from the laboratory are translated into treatments for patients.
This course is run by The University of Sheffield in partnership with Health Education England. It provides progressive programme of fundamental genetics and genomics, through to applied clinical practice and genomic research, whilst recognising the ethical, legal and social issues that arise in using genetic data.
Learn to apply the fundamentals of neuroanatomy and physiology to better understand the clinical features of patients with neurological disease. An integrated approach links recent research advances to cutting edge management in the clinic, focusing on how insights from the laboratory translate to benefits for patients.
This MSc will provide you with up-to-date knowledge of advances in the field, research experience with internationally renowned research groups and transferable skills to give you a springboard for your future career.
