¿Qué aprenderé?

Modern Anatomy is about placing function in a structural context and providing adequate spatial and temporal resolution of cellular events.

Postgraduate students will be expected to complete a research project within one of our areas of interest using the extensive range of technologies available in the discipline of Anatomy. Students are required to take a number of taught modules.

Additionally, it is envisaged that postgraduate students will participate in scientific cross-over with intra-institutional and external laboratories. It is also expected that the PhD students would contribute to teaching activities of the discipline.

Admission to our research programmes requires prior approval of the discipline.
