Biomedical Research - Microbiome in Health and Disease stream

"This stream offers a wide range of projects at the forefront of the exciting field of microbiome. Whether you’d prefer wet lab-based projects or computer-based projects, there is something for you. The course is well organised and is structured in a way for students to gain experience of real research in action with an appropriate dose of very useful lectures. The course organisers take students' welfare seriously and are very approachable whenever help is needed. I’d definitely recommend this course to anyone who is interested in this fascinating and expanding field of microbiome.” 
Abellona U (2015)

“My experience in the MHD stream had been challenging yet rewarding. The research projects not only taught me a variety of skills and techniques, it gave me the opportunity to be a part of leading research groups at Imperial College. While my supervisors gave me the support and guidance I needed, my opinions were respected and I was given enough freedom to develop myself as a scientist and direct the research towards my own interest. The lectures were conducted in small classes which made the sessions very interactive. The lecture topics were also well chosen and gave me a strong background to support my research. ”
