The information provided on this page was correct at the time of publication (November 2019). For complete and up-to-date information about this course, please visit the relevant University of Oxford course page via This DPhil programme is for basic science graduates who want to undertake advanced research into cardiovascular disease. The programme provides you with a solid grounding in the study of cardiac and vascular biology through the provision of taught courses, advanced level seminars and tutorials predominantly in the first year. You are provided with a co-ordinated programme of post-graduate teaching in your first year and the possibility of experiencing research in more than one laboratory. This is followed by a three-year research project, under the supervision of a named supervisor. You will gain a greater understanding of the cardiovascular research field and can bring a broader perspective to your research project than is possible under the standard three-year DPhil. The taught components in the first year include attendance at final year undergraduate lectures in the following areas: Option A: Pharmacology and signalling Option B: Endocrinology and metabolism Option C: Cardiovascular science Option D: Molecular pathology Option E: Development and disease Option F: Infection Option G: Immunity Option H: Cellular neuroscience Option I: Systems neuroscience Option J: Cognitive and behavioural neuroscience You may take first- and second-year BM courses in pathology, immunology, pharmacology and integrated systems physiology. You will have the opportunity to write an extended essay at the end of each period of advanced study. You will have access to a wide range of training in generic research skills provided through seminars and short courses. Examples of the courses that may be available to you include: In your first term of graduate study in Oxford you will attend a series of seven two-day mini-rotations where you will meet graduate students and principal investigators working in seven broad areas of areas of cardiovascular science: Typically you will experience research in two laboratories during your first year mini-rotations, to expose you to techniques and research modalities. You will be expected to design and execute experimental protocols, critically appraise research methods and experimental results, and communicate research results and their implications to a wide audience. You will be encouraged to develop DPhil projects that bridge the work of two separate laboratories or that involve two complementary experimental approaches. The first year of your graduate studies will be overseen by an academic mentor who will monitor your academic progress and be available to offer advice and support throughout the course of your graduate studies. The department aims for you to be associated with one host laboratory for the first nine months of your graduate studies under the supervision of a laboratory mentor who will ensure you receive appropriate training in laboratory methods and in planning, executing and analysing experiments. From the second year onwards, you will spend the remainder of the programme carrying out a specific research project.
