Biomedical science plays a pivotal role in healthcare. This course has been designed to respond to the increasing need for highly skilled biomedical researchers across a range of industries. The programme aims to explore normal and pathological cell processes and relate these to clinical features, diagnostic procedures and responses to therapy in a range of model diseases.
How you learn
The course provides grounding in a range of scientific disciplines applicable to modern Biomedical Laboratory Science including cell biology, molecular biology, immunology and microbiology. You will develop an understanding of the pathogenesis of different diseases from a cellular to whole system level and discuss methods for the diagnosis and treatment of patients.
You will apply your theoretical knowledge of disease systems to conduct a practical investigative research project. The programme provides you with the opportunity for career development within the area of Biomedical Laboratory Sciences, either as a researcher within a clinical or commercial setting or as a PhD student within the biomedical field.
