Biomedical Sciences

Learn about how the human body functions in both health and disease, and discover how advances in biomedical sciences have helped in the diagnosis, treatment and monitoring of illness. You will have the opportunity to carry out many of these techniques for yourself in our purpose-built modern laboratories. At the end of your first year of study, you can choose to continue your multidisciplinary studies in biomedical sciences and gain a BSc (Hons) Biomedical Sciences award by studying modules such as: Infectious Diseases, Biology of Cancer, Clinical Biochemistry, Clinical Immunology, Neuroscience, Medical Genetics and Blood Diseases. Or you can choose to study for a combined degree award by specialising in one of our four specific pathways: **BSc (Hons) Biomedical Sciences & Medical Biochemistry** Study the biochemical interactions within the body, and the diagnosis of biochemically related diseases. Year 2 and Year 3 modules: Enzymatic Biochemistry, Metabolic Biochemistry, Clinical Immunology and Clinical Biochemistry. **BSc (Hons) Biomedical Sciences & Molecular Biotechnology** By looking at the biological process involving genetics and gene technology you will learn about the molecular advances in the treatment of disease and the processes used to make treatments. Year 2 and Year 3 modules: DNA Technology, Introduction to Biotechnology, Medical Genetics and Medical Biotechnology. **BSc (Hons) Biomedical Sciences & Pharmacological Sciences** Discover how different drugs are used for the treatment of diseases and what effect they have on the body. You will also develop your understanding of pharmacological principles and how they inform the development of drugs. Year 2 and Year 3 modules: Medical Pathophysiology, Pharmacological treatment of Disease, Advances in Pharmacology and Neuroscience. **BSc (Hons) Biomedical Sciences & Medical Microbiology** You will study the various types of pathogen that cause infectious disease, and the strategies they use to attack the body. You will learn how to how to diagnose them and also the treatments available. You will also look at the global burden of infectious disease and the various worldwide initiatives underway to try and control this challenging threat. Year 2 and Year 3 modules: Medical and Environmental Microbiology, Infectious Diseases, Global Topics in Infectious Diseases and Clinical Immunology. **Biomedical Sciences Laboratories** Housing modern IT and AV facilities, our new Biomedical Sciences laboratory provides important, contemporary facilities for our students, including a range of biochemical, microbiological, molecular and physiological analysis equipment. **Accreditation** This course is currently pending accreditation with the Royal Society of Biology.
