Medical Biology forms the bridge between basic research and clinical medicine. It is the corner stone of modern health care and advanced drug development. You will learn about the cellular and genetic causes of major medical disorders such as cancer, psychiatric syndromes, autoimmune diseases, genetic disorders, as well as develop your knowledge of stem cell biology. You will study how major human diseases develop and explore the various ways in which medical disorders can be treated. The degree will take advantage of the expertise and facilities associated with the North West Cancer Research Institute. Students can either graduate after three years with a BSc (Hons) in Medical Biology (C191) or they can acquire a Master in Biology (Medical Biology) (C192) by conducting an extended research project in year 4.
