Gain an understanding of human health and the causes, prevention and treatment of disease. You’ll be prepared for roles in biomedical research. Studying Biomedical Sciences you will explore all aspects of modern biosciences related to humans. You’ll develop fundamental scientific and experimental skills, preparing you for a career as a practical scientist in biomedical research. The curriculum is focussed on research across a broad range of topics, including human genetics and genomics, physiology, cancer biology, pathology, anatomy, immunology, molecular and cellular biology, biochemistry and pharmacology. In the first two years you will study a set of core units from the Departments of Biology & Biochemistry, Pharmacy & Pharmacology and Health. This will give you a broad practical knowledge base of biomedical sciences. This is enhanced in the second year with optional units. In the final year you’ll have the opportunity to carry out research within either the Department of Biology & Biochemistry or Health. You will also be able to choose from a broad range of final year units to complement the areas of biomedical sciences in which you are most interested. This course has a flexible, research-focused curriculum and is not intended for subsequent registration by the Health and Care Professions Council.
