Biomedical Engineering

Underpinning this course is an understanding of cell and molecular biology; from this starting point students are exposed to a number of key areas in biomedical engineering including computational, which allows students to understand the potential of genomic analysis and its relationship to the emerging field of proteomic and metabonomic analysis; medical imaging and cryobiology detail principles of protein localisation in cells and tissues, methods of cell and tissue visualisation through to the use of whole body imaging by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI); finally, tissue engineering builds on existing understanding of maintenance of cells in vitro and the development of methods to create 3-dimensional cultures and tissues; in addition, students participate in individual projects with the aim of extending range of practical skills in the context of research.
