Masters degrees in Medical Biotechnology administer training in the application of organisms and their biological outputs for medical, pharmaceutical and veterinary practices.
Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject.
Degrees in Medical Biotechnology are highly varied depending on where your interests lie. If human or animal medicine is of interest to you, you will study topics such as microbial disease diagnostics, molecular medicine, and cell technology. If your interest lies in pharmaceuticals, you would examine pharmacology as a whole, including toxicology, drug design, commercialisation, and business management.
You will increase your lab skills, for example through the handling of mammalian cell cultures, as well as skills in data collection and analyses, refined through research projects and report writing.
Careers in this field may include positions in product development, drug design, clinical trials, work in the nutraceutical industry, or consultancy positions within governing bodies and agencies. Your Masters would also provide excellent experience for further study at PhD level.
