Biomedical Science

This course offers students the opportunity to address the developing areas of biomedical science common to all associated disciplines, including recent advances in genetics and immunology, and to equip students with the research skills necessary to complement their clinical laboratory responsibilities. The Professional Doctorate course combines analytical appraisal of continuing practice with a major research project, which may be undertaken in the workplace laboratory, or with 1 of the active Biomedical Science research groups in the Research Institute in Healthcare Science. Part-time students study core (and most optional) modules on 1 full day of the week, minimising the time away from work.
