SITraN is part of the Department of Neuroscience in the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry & Health at the University of Sheffield. Our postgraduate MSc courses and research degrees offer students a springboard into a career in neurosciences. New Msc courses in Translational Pathology[Neuroscience] and Genomic Medicine have started in September 2015.
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. These diseases are a huge economic burden to society and a cause of much suffering to patients and carers alike.
The University of Sheffield in partnership with Health Education England (HEE) are launching an exciting new masters course for September 2015. The course 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, focussing on how insights from the laboratory are translated into benefits for patients.
