Discover the science of the processes behind the growth and development of organisms. Develop specialist knowledge of cell and developmental biology.
You’ll study the genes and molecules that control cell growth, differentiation and morphogenesis that create tissues, organs and individuals. You’ll learn in facilities with outstanding provision for experimental work, using a range of model, plant and vertebrate organisms. The course is ideal if you would like to specialise further in a particular field, or if you would like to change direction from your first science degree.
You’ll learn with some of the world’s leading academics in a welcoming and collaborative environment that has strong interdisciplinary links. You will be able to select from a diverse range of topics and projects to tailor your course.
You will have the opportunity to study as part of the Centre for Regenerative Medicine at Bath. The Centre enables work in regenerative medicine to be underpinned by an understanding of normal developmental organisms.
Your studies will help you develop the skills you need to move into a wide range of careers in the sciences or to take on further research. Our graduates have an excellent employment record with companies and academic institutions across the globe. Graduates have moved into roles with employers including the Institute of Cancer Research and Atlas Genetics.
