This taught MSc Biomedical Sciences programme is designed to provide training and experience in Biomedical Sciences. The specific aims are to:
- provide a high level of scientific knowledge and understanding of disease processes from the molecular to the body/systems level
- develop an informed and critical appreciation of recent scientific developments in relation to diagnostic laboratory pathology
- enable students to gain, through a research project, additional specialist knowledge and practical expertise
- prepare students for a broad spectrum of career opportunities spanning academic, commercial, industrial and healthcare applications of biomedical sciences. The course is also an excellent foundation for further studies leading to a PhD.
