Biomedical Science is an important and growing scientific field. By training as a researcher in biomedical sciences, you will gain the skills to make a contribution to human health and wellbeing. This course is centred on the Biomedical Sciences Building at the University of Bristol – a centre of internationally important research in the Biosciences. Our research strengths include cancer, neuroscience, cardiovascular disease, infection and immunity and cell biology. Your course will be led by experts in these fields, who will share their knowledge and passion for research. Biomedical Sciences is host to the Wolfson Bioimaging Centre – a leading centre for cell imaging. You will learn about this and the other cutting-edge technologies that our researchers use in their research.

Your course starts with a set of lectures, tutorials and practical sessions designed to train you in the research skills needed to work in Biomedical Sciences. We aim to build your confidence and experience, and to prepare you for your lab research project. You will personalise your degree by choosing three research areas to specialise in from our key areas:

Cell biology, Cancer, Cardiovascular Disease, Infection and Immunology, Neuroscience and Pharmacology.

You will have lectures on your three chosen specialities, helping you to choose the future direction of your research.

Through the course, you will be given training on scientific writing and presentation – two critical skills in research. You will research and write a project on a biomedical subject that interests you, allowing you to take your studies further, and complementing your optional units.

At the heart of the course is a 12-week laboratory project in a lab chosen by you. Here you will be working in a real research lab, side-by-side with the researchers in that group. You will see how a research lab works, and how biomedical research can contribute to human and animal health. The experience you gain will help you decide on your future career direction – whether in research or in one of the many careers that align with it. During your lab placement, your supervisor will be able to help you plan PhD applications and future destinations.
