The Biomedical Materials research degrees cover an exciting area of research in the School focusing both on fundamental understanding of interactions between man-made materials and biological tissues and the development of useful applications. We have close links with the world’s leading pharmaceutical and medical device companies and the clinical applications of our research impact many areas of medicine.

The subject
The subject of biomedical materials covers those materials that are used in the context of biology and medicine, usually to evaluate, treat, augment or replace any tissue, organ or function of the body. In surgery, a biomaterial may be a synthetic material used to replace part of a living system or to function in intimate contact with living tissue.

A new area in biomaterials involves the exploration of nanotechnology for drug delivery, biological sensing or tissue regeneration. Examples of these bionanomaterials are small particles that may be used for the delivery of drug molecules to target sites within the body or to detect diseased areas.

Biomaterials are produced using chemical, physical, mechanical processes and they often employ or mimic biological phenomena in order for them to interact with their biological surroundings in defined ways..

Application of research
The clinical applications of our research impact many areas of medicine, including drug delivery, cancer, wound healing, stem cell technology, repair and regeneration of nerve, tendon, cartilage, bone, intevertebral disc, skin, ligament and cornea.

Industry collaboration
We have strong ties with industry, including ongoing collaboration with Smith & Nephew, Johnson & Johnson, and Versamatrix A/S (Denmark), developing novel biomaterial based strategies for wound healing, bone repair, control of inflammation and drug delivery.

This programme aims to meet the needs of the fine chemicals, cosmetics, biomaterial, polymers, surface coatings and colorant industries for well-trained, enthusiastic employees having a breadth of practical and academic skills at an advanced level, providing you with advance knowledge and research skills in colour science and in the theory, application and analysis of polymers, fine chemicals and colorants.

The MSc will equip you with skills including planning experimentation and processes, synthesis, characterisation and application aspects, alongside a broad range of generic skills such as problem-solving and communication.

Students study the following core modules: Synthesis and Application of Polymers; Colour Application Technology; Analysis and Characterisation of Polymers; Colorants and Fine Chemicals; Advanced Colour Science; Case Studies in Fine Chemical and Pharmaceutical Synthesis.

Together these modules will give you a thorough grounding in concepts, information and techniques relevant to polymers, colorants and fine chemicals, as well as introducing you to topics from the research frontier. In addition you will choose from two optional modules covering organic synthesis for fine chemical and pharmaceutical synthesis, depending on your background knowledge in this area.

The focal point of the course is the extended research project. This project will contribute about 40% of the mark for your degree. Staff will help you to select the project that is right for you, in an area that interests and motivates you. The project will provide you with key research experience to take your career forward. With the core modules behind you, you will be ideally positioned to choose an exciting problem to investigate.

Running continuously for over 50 years, our Masters in Biomedical Engineering is one of the longest-established in the world, giving a breadth of expertise with a focus on solving real-world, biomedical problems.

You’ll benefit from access to world-leading experts and teaching in state-of-the-art facilities, such as the new £12m “Engineering for Health” facility.

PROGRAMME OVERVIEW

In the first semester of the programme, graduates from a range of backgrounds are brought up-to-speed on core knowledge in engineering, biology and research practice.

This is followed by specialist modules in the second semester on human movement analysis, prostheses, implants, physiological measurements and rehabilitation, as well as numerous computer methods applied across the discipline.

The course makes use of different approaches to teaching, including traditional lectures and tutorials, off-site visits to museums and hospitals, and lab work (particularly in the Human Movement and Instrumentation modules).

The core lecturing team is supplemented by leading figures from hospitals and industry.

PROGRAMME STRUCTURE

This programme is studied full-time over one academic year and part-time over two academic years. It consists of eight taught modules and a research project.

All modules are taught on the University main campus, with the exception of visits to the health care industry (e.g. commercial companies and NHS hospitals). The following modules are indicative, reflecting the information available at the time of publication. Please note that not all modules described are compulsory and may be subject to teaching availability and/or student demand.
