Biomedical Science

Biomedical science is about understanding our bodies and our ability to control them during health and disease. It's the basic science that underpins medicine. Breakthroughs in biomedical science feature regularly in the news, from radical new treatments for cancer patients to innovative advances in reproductive technologies and regenerative medicine. Over the last twenty years, research into the human genome and molecular processes has revolutionised our understanding of biological systems. This research-led masters is taught by experts in the key areas of modern biology to give you a broad understanding of biomedical science today. Throughout your degree, you'll be taught through lectures, practical sessions, lab placements, tutorials and seminars. In small group teaching classes you'll discuss, debate and present on scientific and ethical topics. The biggest part of the course will be your individual research project, working alongside professional scientists. Our teaching covers ethics, practical scientific skills and an overview of the current literature. You'll also develop useful career skills such as presentation, communication and time management.
