The course prepares physical scientists, life scientists and engineers to work in the rapidly-expanding disciplines of biophotonics and imaging; for those with a background in the biological sciences, emphasis is placed on the quantitative methods that now play a crucial role in the development of biology; students with previous experience in engineering or physics are tutored in the challenges of working at the interface with biology; most of the teaching involves project work, some of which is common to students from all backgrounds; once this foundation is laid the student engages in a research project of their choice; students gain training in optical science and technology and cell biology with different emphasis depending on their background; they also develop key skills enabling them to communicate with researchers in other disciplines.
