About Biomedical Health at University of Derby

This masters will enable you to develop an in-depth understanding of the biomedical regulation of the human body and how this is impacted by disease.

  • Increase your understanding of what current diseases are impacting global human health, the damage they are having on our body and how we can look to prevent this disease burden
  • Develop advanced research skills that will prove invaluable for careers in medical research, the NHS and other health organisations, health charities, and biomedical industries
  • You will cover areas such as oncology, diabetes, Alzheimer's/dementia, obesity and infectious diseases such as antibiotic resistance, bacteria and viruses
  • Our teaching team are active human health researchers as well as experienced teachers. The diversity of research projects underway, which you can contribute to is vast - covering issues such as potential new treatments for ovarian cancer and the role of the Human Papilloma Virus in the development of head and neck cancers

As with other Biomedical Master degrees your academic knowledge will be supported by the practical applications of biomedical science, particularly in relation to modern molecular biology and infectious disease methods.

However what is unique about this masters is that you can also look to develop a more in-depth understanding of public health and how we look to protect people from the national and international threats to their health.

You'll explore how the biomedical regulation of the human body can be affected by a person's physical wellbeing, their lifestyle choices, the environment they inhabit, and also the infectious diseases to which they can be exposed.

You will get the opportunity to further develop your laboratory skills in our newly-upgraded facilities and be introduced to scientific instrumentation being used in biomedical research and NHS facilities.

We also deepen your awareness of the social and governmental driving forces which are transforming Global public health to strenghten the Global health focus.

What students think about University of Derby

    Arun Sudhakar MSc International Spa Management

    Testimonial from Arun Sudhakar MSc International Spa Management, student at University of Derby

    “Any student who really wants to progress with their learning will not be disappointed when joining the University of Derby. I would recommend all ambitious students interested in the spa industry to come and join the MA International Spa Management course for a brighter future!

     I really enjoyed studying in Buxton. It is a very calm and beautiful place where I have been successful in building good relations with the local people. I will be so sad when I leave because of the memories of some great times I have had here. I feel blessed with the knowledge and experience I got from my tutors, and have enjoyed each and every moment.”
