Course summary

Course overview:

Biomedical science is about deepening our understanding of the human body in health and disease, helping to develop treatments that can save and improve lives.

The MSc Advanced Biomedical Science provides the skills and knowledge to create wide-ranging opportunities for employment in fields such as hospital science, biomedical and pharmaceutical industries or public health laboratories within the NHS. The opportunity to develop your research skills, explore specialist areas, and complete an independent research project, provides preparation for careers in research or teaching or to pursue studies towards a PhD. The course aims to produce postgraduates who have the knowledge and skills to become professional biomedical scientists and operate at an advanced level. Core modules will develop knowledge of the biological aspects of disease processes while introducing cutting edge analytical skills.

Our extensive links with NHS and private laboratories, ensure course content is kept up to date and relevant to employers. You are introduced to some of the contemporary issues facing the industry. The course provides hands-on practical experience of both laboratory and bioinformatics techniques. You are trained in biotechnology research strategies and gain a sound understanding of the nature of business based on bioscience knowledge and research, their opportunities for innovation and regulatory requirement constraints, intellectual property and ethical issues. The course develops comprehensive knowledge and understanding of biomedical science in the 21st century. It focuses on genomics and bioinformatics together with emerging clinical biochemistry and diagnostic techniques. You also have the option to explore pathobiology of genetic disorders or neurodegenerative disease or infectious diseases in great depth. The course is delivered at the University’s National Horizons Centre, a new £22m research, teaching and training facility which addresses the growth needs of the bio-based industries set to transform the UK economy, including biologics, industrial biotechnology and bio-pharmaceuticals.The centre’s imaginative design includes a blend of teaching, learning and collaboration spaces, hi-tech laboratories and a state-of-the-art computing suite.
