Biomedical scientists work at the cutting edge of research and medicine, helping to solve some of the most threatening diseases and conditions facing mankind. St George’s boasts a renowned heritage in this field, constantly developing new and innovative solutions to enhance diagnosis, prevention and treatment of numerous diseases.  Edward Jenner, “The Father of Immunology” who successfully performed the first vaccination against smallpox was based at St George’s.  More recently, our research includes a focus on tuberculosis, malaria and HIV in low and middle income countries.

This pathway will give you the opportunity to study antimicrobial resistance, with a particular focus on healthcare impact, genetic technologies and interventions to reduce AMR.  Specific topics will include AMR in tuberculosis, MRSA, sexually transmitted infections and HIV. There will be an opportunity to learn bioinformatics techniques and the enormous impact that genetics is having on understanding epidemiology, selection and evolution of AMR pathogens.  There will be a series of sessions focusing on strategies to reduce AMR such as rapid diagnostics, stewardship, dosing, new drugs, vaccines and phage.

This compelling course enables you to continue that pioneering work, a Master of Research in Biomedical Science - Antimicrobial Resistance will provide you with the skills, knowledge and experience for a rewarding career in biomedical science or to progress on to a fulfilling research degree such as a PhD.
