About the course

The MSc in Diagnostics and Precision Medicine is a new blended-learning programme that details how diagnostics and therapeutics are revolutionising healthcare and medicine by providing the right person with the right therapy at the right time.

Recent advances in the understanding of normal and diseased states has led to revolutionary new treatments for conditions such as cancer, inflammatory diseases and inherited diseases. Furthermore, advances in science and technology have resulted in the development of new biomedical assays to (a) diagnose diseases and conditions more accurately (b) classify disease more precisely (c) approach treatment more individually and (d) identify who is at risk of developing a disease or condition.

Student Profile(s)

Afnan Abd Elhaq

I am Afnan from Jerusalem in Palestine.

Let me tell you about my studying journey at DCU! I studied MSc in Diagnostics and Precision Medicine funded by the Irish Aid, which was a cherishable turning point in my life.

During the three semesters, I received world-class education from experienced mentors and lecturers, who contributed greatly to my excellence. In addition, I was blessed with many lovely friends who played a vital role in my motivation and added joy to my adventure.

Although the covid-19 crisis changed my research-intended master thesis project, I successfully completed the work with lots of commitment and dedication, and most importantly, with the keen guidance from my supervisors. I encourage joining this program because of its comprehensiveness, variety, and cohesiveness.

Currently, I have been given the opportunity to put my education into real practice by being a covid-19 Laboratory Technician.

My takeaways were lots of memories, great accomplishments, and a huge love for DCU and of course, Ireland.
