he Master of Biomedical Science with a specialisation in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology provides advanced training and studies using new generation biochemistry and molecular biology techniques to understand cellular content, structure, organisation and interactions assessed with state-of-the art technologies.
Biomedical Science encompasses a range of biological, medical and health-related disciplines addressing global biomedical challenges such as obesity, cancer, neurological diseases and cardiovascular disease.
Biomedical Science draws on the disciplines of anatomy, physiology, biochemistry and neuroscience and the para-clinical disciplines of microbiology, pathology and pharmacology to understand and treat human disease. Biomedical Science has increasingly embraced the overarching disciplines of human genetics, epigenetics and genomics to understand how gene-environment interactions define the human phenotype in its normal and diseased states.
The course provides you with a wide range of career choices in industry (e.g. pharmaceutical companies); in hospital, university and government research laboratories; and in the health industry and government departments that deal with health promotion and related services.
Potential career destinations will also be influenced by your specialisation; for example, graduates who specialise in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology are well prepared for a career related to pharmaceutical research and development, whereas those taking a Human Biology specialisation are well prepared for a career in the provision of health services (e.g. an embryologist in a fertility clinic).
The Master of Biomedical Science also provides a pathway to PhD studies for those graduates who complete a research dissertation as part of their course.
To be considered for admission into this course an applicant must have a bachelor's degree of this University, with a major in a biomedical science or health science discipline, or equivalent as recognised by the Faculty. English Language Requirements View Website
