Course summary

Recent advances in the field of Biological Sciences have revolutionised the way we understand and treat disease. Stem cell and novel cell based therapies and personalised medicine are increasingly in the headlines and Biological Scientists are leading the way in developing these powerful new therapeutic options. Modern medicine requires an understanding of the key interactions of molecules and cells both internally within the cell and the body and externally from the environment. This can include how a cell responds to a specific pathogen, or how a drug targets a specific pathogen or cellular protein. Equally, external stimuli, such as chemicals, toxic waste or carcinogens, can also have an effect on how cells grow and divide, modifying their function with devastating consequences for health. The Biological Sciences programme at GCU has a strong focus on human disease and aims to help you understand these events, and demonstrate how therapies that may correct or prevent the diseased state are developed.Biological Sciences is the study of biology from molecules through to whole body systems, looking at what goes on inside a cell or organism and examining how cells communicate and interact with each other to influence physiological mechanisms in health and disease.The Department of Biological and Biomedical Sciences has an excellent teaching and research record. It combines a friendly learning environment with state-of-the-art facilities. It offers a range of support tailored to individual needs where necessary, including open door access. Major emphasis is placed upon laboratory work throughout the programme. This enhances your learning, by linking theory with practice, giving you the lab skills which employers seek.
