Our Virtual Open Day, on Monday, 4 March 2024, 09.30 – 11:00, is a great way to find out more about studying the MRes Clinical Research at Imperial College’s Faculty of Medicine.


  • Welcome from the Course Director and Pathway Leads
  • Programme Overview
  • Your MRes Journey – Timeline and Timetable
  • Your Research Project
  • Hear from our students
  • Q&A

The MRes Clinical Research course will develop your core clinical research skills, such as clinical trial design, conduct and implementation, research dissemination conduct, critical appraisal, applying for ethics and research funding, and exploring a range of challenging clinical research scenarios and contexts.

You’ll then specialise in a chosen area of clinical research on one of three dedicated pathways:

Diabetes and Obesity – Develop a deep understanding of the underlying pathophysiology, and research advances in the prevention, management and treatment of diabetes and obesity.

Human Nutrition – Gain deep insight into the latest developments of interplay of diet, health and disease, such as gastrointenstinal tract mechanisms, aging and chronic disease , engaging with cutting edge research including investigative techniques such as Camera technology, Metabolomics and and Omic technology, to accurately explore the most clinically relevant research questions.

Translational Medicine – assess the challenges of drug development including clinical trial design, and learn why most drug development programmes are unsuccessful, and how to improve the success rate. You’ll also have an opportunity to apply your practical experience and training to a research project.

Our Virtual Open Day is a great opportunity to quiz our teams and decide if this course is for you. We look forward to seeing you there.
