Programme description

Combined Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and Magnetic Resonance (MR) is an imaging technology which allows information on metabolic function, physiology, and anatomy to be collected in a single scanning session for diagnostic and research purposes (e.g. investigating dementias & cancers).

PET-MR scanners are increasingly being installed in clinical and research settings, but currently training in how to run and best use such facilities is limited, often requiring long periods of residency, away from work and personal commitments at home.

The University of Edinburgh is among the few UK centres with a PET-MR scanner and personnel with the expertise in how to run and use it. This programme harnesses our expertise in imaging technology, which will allow learners to train in this field via an online learning environment.... [-]

Programme description

In the veterinary management of animals, anaesthesia (rendering animals unconscious to permit procedures) and analgesia (reducing the pain an animal is suffering) have vital importance in improving animal welfare, as well as permitting the ongoing developments in medical and surgical advances.

Knowledge and advances in anaesthesia over the last 20 years have been considerable. We can use techniques to block sensation locally or over a region of the body, not just total unconsciousness. We have an array of drugs and methods of drug administration available to us in our fight against pain. Anaesthesia has always carried risks, and we have an increasing availability of monitoring equipment to help us monitor the physiological function of the body during anaesthesia with the aim of reducing morbidity and mortality in our animals....

Programme description

Veterinary epidemiology is a key component in a number of global grand challenges relating to disease control, food security and climate change. Consequently, there is a need to improve our ability to understand, predict and respond to patterns and dynamics of disease and to control outbreaks.

The R(D)SVS and SRUC partnership create the greatest concentration of research power in veterinary and agricultural sciences in the UK. The MSc draws on this wealth of experience and research activity to provide scientific knowledge of the fundamental biological processes (e.g. behaviour, physiology, immunology, ecology) and environmental and farming management practices (e.g. husbandry, nutrition, livestock trade) driving disease transmission, persistence, prevalence and spread in livestock production systems. This enables an in-depth understanding of complex environmental patterns of disease, which facilitates the prediction of disease risk and control. This multidisciplinary systems approach will provide you with the skills to make significant contributions to tackling food security, climate change and disease control in your role as an animal health professional....
