  • CPPD ModulePharmacogenomics and Stratified Healthcare

    Pharmacogenomics and Stratified Healthcare

    This module will provide a comprehensive overview of the analytical strategies and techniques used in pharmacogenomics and explores some of the challenges and limitations in this field. Also provides an overview of the different type of genomic biomarkers currently in use or emerging.

  • CPPD ModuleApplication of Genomics in Infectious Disease

    Application of Genomics in Infectious Disease

    This module will show how genomics can be used to provide more accurate diagnosis, predict which drugs are likely to be more effective, and monitor treatment and control of infectious disease in both individuals and populations.

  • CPPD ModuleBioinformatics, Interpretation, Statistics & Data Quality Assurance in Genomics

    Bioinformatics, Interpretation, Statistics & Data Quality Assurance in Genomics

    This module will provide the knowledge and understanding required to critically interpret existing genomic research, and develop the skills to formulate research questions. Also provides the skills to collect, analyse and interpret NHS data using a basic range of statistical and bioinformatics techniques.

  • CPPD ModuleEthical, Legal and Social Issues in Applied Genomics

    Ethical, Legal and Social Issues in Applied Genomics

    This module will provide a framework for the ethical understanding of medical genomics and gives an opportunity to explore the ethical, legal and social issues involved in genomic testing and the wider implications for the patient and their families.

  • CPPD ModuleEconomic models and human genomics

    Economic Models and Human Genomics

    This module will explore the potential economic impact of new genomic technologies on the healthcare system. Economic models will be used to predict the anticipated costs and assess the benefits to patients of new technological approaches.

  • CPPD ModuleWorkplace-based Learning in Genomic Medicine

    Workplace-based Learning in Genomic Medicine

    This module will provide the option to consider work-based examples that could explore genomic practice in an individual's workplace, for example in the form of a case-based portfolio of study.

  • CPPD ModuleGenomic Medicine Professional & Research Skills

    Genomic Medicine Professional & Research Skills

    This module will provide the underpinning knowledge of the importance of research, development and innovation across the NHS and in healthcare science in particular. Students will learn about the importance of ethics for a project and understand the legal framework in which research with patients and/or patient samples must be undertaken.

  • CPPD ModuleEpigenetics in Human Health and Diseases

    Epigenetics in Human Health and Diseases

    The field of epigenetics provides a mechanism for the interaction of the genome with environmental exposures. This module will provide you with a solid foundation in understanding the role of the epigenome in health and disease and how the epigenome changes with age and in response to a plethora of environmental and psychosocial factors.

    This module has been developed by the provider to be offered in addition to the National Genomics Education Programme Core and Optional modules.
  • CPPD ModuleDisease Modelling and Genome Engineering

    Disease Modelling and Genome Engineering

    This unit will provide essential and contemporary knowledge on the importance of using model systems to investigate the functional genomics of inherited human diseases. The unit will also review genomic engineering technologies and provide a workshop for the design of CRISPR-Cas9 reagents.

  • CPPD ModuleHealth Informatics

    Health Informatics

    Central to any efforts to build an efficient health care system, or in supporting evidence-based medicine, is the need to capture information around patient diagnosis and medical treatment. At the core of this module is the development of electronic patient records.
