The primary goal of Biomedical Science is to enhance understanding of human body function in health and disease. In the first two years of your degree, you will gain a broad knowledge of subjects related to medical science and in scientific research methods. In addition, you will enhance your critical analysis abilities while developing your interpersonal skills through team-working and oral/written communications. Advanced knowledge of molecular biology will be acquired in the third and fourth years of the programme. Molecular biology has revolutionised the progress of biology over the last half century, culminating in the determination of the complete human genome sequence, and is central to current investigations to understand the genetic basis of human disease and pathology, as well as to the development of improved crops.
