Precision Medicine: Genomic Data Science - MSc

University of Leeds    School of Biomedical Sciences

Full time September MSc 1 year full time

About the course

Transform healthcare through personalised genomic medicine

The rapid transformation of healthcare through personalised genomic medicine is matched only by the consistently growing demand for talented graduates with the right skill-set.

From early diagnosis, to drugs based on our unique genetic codes, to disease prevention, there is a huge demand for more biomedical scientists with analytical skills. Responding to this gap, this unique course has been designed to directly meet the need for those with both biological knowledge and the computational and analytical interest to drive genomic precision medicine.

Student Profile(s)

Diogo Ann Onuselogu

I chose to study my course to learn about how big data and precision medicine are furthering our knowledge in biology, medicine, and public health. As someone with a biomedical sciences background, I’m proud I was able to learn and use calculus, statistics, and programming beyond what I had ever learnt before.
