A new Masters degree in Biomedical Gerontology is now available at 
the University of Manchester's Graduate School of Science, 
Engineering and Medicine. The course is full-time for one year and 
comprises a taught component and a research project. Currently, 
there are no plans for part-time students. The degree programme is 
an advanced course in Biomedical Gerontology that will enable 
graduate students in Biology, Medicine, Dentistry, and candidates 
from other scientific disciplines with a biology background to 
obtain specialised training in the field of Biomedical Gerontology. 
The students will have a choice of modules, depending on their 
qualifications, to pursue their chosen area of study. Since 
Biomedical Gerontology is a multidisciplinary field of study 
potential researchers will need to study other areas of biology at 
a postgraduate level to fully equip them for such broad based 
research. The School of Biological Sciences at Manchester has MSc 
programmes in Neuroscience, Immunology and Bioinformatics that have 
appropriate modules for students doing the Biomedical Gerontology 

This degree will be the ideal starting point for a student about to 
embark on a career of biomedical research in this area, but will 
also be of benefit to professionals working in health care of the
