Biomedical Science uses the basis of biological principles to enhance our understanding of human health and the treatment of disease, using a multidisciplinary approach. Knowledge of various disciplines allows the exploration of the normal physiology of the human body to an appreciation of the processes of disease, aiding our advances in disease diagnosis and subsequent therapeutic intervention. Students undertaking this MSc programme will gain an understanding of the importance of research and experience advanced techniques, incorporating research design and data analysis.
This programme is taught by academic staff from the School, and invited speakers such as clinical staff from local hospitals. You will be allocated a personal tutor and have regular contact with experienced researchers working in the biomedical field.
The modules taken by all students during taught semesters 1 & 2 are: • Current Topics in Biomedical Science • Research Skills in Biomedical Sciences • Diseases in Biomedicine • Infection and Immunity • Ethics in Biomedicine/Clinical Statistics • Cellular and Molecular Biology of Cancer
During Semester 3, every student undertakes a substantive and significant research project research project on your chosen aspect of biomedical science.
The School's facilities include a wide range of instrumentation and up-to-date equipment for proteomic and genomic analysis, coupled with the studies of cellular processes.
