In your first year, you will gain a broad understanding of the biology of normal and cancerous cells. In addition to studying the immune system, you will take pathology, microbiology and biochemistry units. In the second year, you will study the cellular and molecular basis of cancer and its therapy, as well as autoimmune diseases, such as multiple sclerosis, diabetes and arthritis, and human cancers caused by viruses, such as papilloma and hepatitis B. You will take molecular genetics and an optional unit, possibly anatomy, biochemistry or pharmacology, from a selection offered by other schools. All practical teaching in years one and two is supported by the eBiolabs dynamic laboratory manual. In the final year, you will undertake a research project or scientific dissertation, working in a research group in our Biomedical Sciences Building or in one of the surrounding hospitals. Your work may even be published in scientific literature.
