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.
You will explore modern neuroscience including the molecules that make up individual nerve cells, the transfer of information from one nerve cell to another, and the complexities of how behaviour, thought and emotions are produced, through studying neurodevelopment and neuroendocrinology. You will gain understanding in the tools used to research neuroscience and focus on a particular aspect of current research.
To be considered for admission to this course an applicant must have a bachelor's degree with a major in a biomedical or health science discipline, or an equivalent qualification, as recognised by UWA.
