Introduction to stream-specific compulsory modules

Genes and Nucleic Acid-Based Therapies - Griesenbach

The gene and nucleic acid-based therapies stream will cover a range of disease indications for which gene therapy has been, or is being, developed.

This module will allow in depth discussion on the need for careful selection of gene therapy vectors for specific disease indications as well as problems encountered along the way.

Information on stream Regenerative Medicine

Regenerative Medicine - Rankin

Professor Sara Rankin provides an overview of her stream specific core module.

In this stream lectures will progress from covering fundamental developmental and stem cell biology, through to the practicalities of clinical trials and the commercialization of stem cell therapies. 

At Imperial we are very keen to engage the public with our science and therefore in this stream we have lectures and a workshop  covering innovative ways to engage the public in science.

Information on stream New Horizons in Pharmacology

New Horizons in Pharmacology - Mitchell

Professor Jane Mitchell provides an overview of her stream specific core module.

In this stream lectures will include the history of drugs, from examples like aspirin which is centuries old, right through to new types of drugs made from antibodies or delivered in stem cells. Providing students with a full understanding of drugs from their early conception right up to the latest discoveries.

Our course includes lectures from Imperial College and other world leading institutions that are at the cutting edge of drug development. We also include lectures from professionals in the drug industry and who specialize in the ethics and financial aspects of research and bringing a drug to the market.
