Key Facts

Overview

 

This Specialization will equip you with the knowledge of neuroanatomy, neuroimaging, and neurobiology. I will train you to use this information to participate in neuroscience and neuroimaging research. Techniques such as flow cytometry and ELISA have been used extensively to characterise key neuronal targets, not only supporting the investigation of neuronal physiology but also providing insight into neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and multiple sclerosis.

 

To stay competitive in the field of neuroscience, universities and organizations need qualified neuroscience experts with knowledge and understanding of neurobiology and neuroimaging who use cutting-edge methods like ELISA, fluorescence microscopy, and MRI. This 16-week Specialization is designed to equip you with the knowledge you need to apply in neuroscience research. It will train to you perform research in an international research environment. 

 

Through the virtual internship programme, you’ll gain the essential knowledge and skills required to participate in neuroscience research. This Specialization aims to provide knowledge and advances in neuroscience.

 

Course Content

 

The online distance-learning delivery of the course will provide opportunities to receive expertise from the Cambridge Centre for Innovation and Development (CamCID) researchers, material from our partners, and guest lectures. This specialization includes two Professional Certificates (PCerts), 4 -week Researchers Training Programme, and a virtual internship.

 

Part 1: PCert - Neuroscience and Neuroimaging Research (4 modules)

This 4-week PCert course will provide you with the knowledge of functional human neuroanatomy, neuronal communication, and you will also explore the applications of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) in brain imaging.

 

Further details are mentioned on PCert - Neuroscience and Neuroimaging Research page.

 

Part 2: PCert - Laboratory Skills in Bioscience (4 modules)

This Professional Certificate (PCert) course will provide you with the knowledge and understanding of key laboratory methods like ELISA, flow cytometry, and fluorescence microscopes

 

Further details are mentioned on PCert - Laboratory Skills in Bioscience page.

 

Part 3: Researchers Training Programme (4 weeks)

This unique 4-week online training programme is designed to equip you with the knowledge you need to succeed in your career as a researcher in Biomedical Science.

 

Further details are mentioned on the Researchers Training Programme page.

 

Part 4: Research Internship - Virtual (4 weeks)

This 4 weeks virtual internship will provide you a learning opportunity from researchers at CamCID. It will provide you with opportunities to learn research skills, mentorship session with weekly research-based tasks and guidance during the tasks. You will participate in research activities (tasks and analysis) remotely and apply your knowledge of neuroscience in research.

 

Further details are mentioned on the Internship in Neuroscience page.

 

Fees and Funding

 

UK and International: £349 (including electronic certificate and internship).

 

Reduced fee option:

If you have already completed any of our online PCert courses included in this specialization, fill this form to get a reduced fee payment link. £79 is reduced from the overall cost of the specialization for every PCert you have completed before (copy of your PCert(s) will be required).

 

Entry Requirements

 

This specialization starts with a beginner level and progress towards the mid and advanced level. However, no prior cancer research experience is required.

 

This specialization is designed for all levels of students (Undergraduate students, Master's degree students, or Ph.D.). Basic knowledge of biology, biochemistry, bioscience, medicine, or other relevant areas is highly recommended.

 

All our online courses are taught in English. You must have good English language skills.

 

Career Opportunities

 

This specialization (+ internship) is designed to aid professional development in the field of neuroscience and neuroimaging research, enabling you to further your expertise within an existing career path or to change career direction, for example, into Neuroscience Researcher.

 

Certificate of Completion

 

After successfully completing all 4 parts of this Specialization, you will be provided with an e-certificate of completion and virtual internship at Cambridge Centre for Innovation and Development (CamCID).
