Course summary

Biomedical and molecular sciences are fast-moving fields that explore the complexities of biological systems, often to benefit human health through the discovery of treatments or cures for diseases. We have particular research strengths in these areas at Dundee.

This course focuses on key areas in the biotech and pharmaceutical sectors, and will help prepare you for a future in these industries. You'll gain knowledge and skills that employers are looking for – including an in-depth understanding of molecular and cellular mechanisms of a range of diseases, and how this can help develop better ways of diagnosing and treating disease.

You'll experience the latest technologies related to data analysis, cell imaging, protein and proteome analysis, and cell culture and manipulation – including of stem cells. You'll have access to drug discovery and phenotypic screening technologies that are of industry standard, which are rarely found in an academic setting.

Following the taught component of this course, you'll undertake a research project, working alongside University research staff at the forefront of their field. Our lab spaces are set up to encourage collaboration and networking, and you’ll become part of a diverse and international scientific community. You'll become an efficient problem solver and a successful project manager, developing skills that will prepare you for your future career in academia, industry, or a range of other exciting possibilities.

Careers:

Research labs in universities and employers in the biotechnology and biopharmaceutical industries expect their postgraduate recruits to have strong, broad-ranging skills. They're looking for people who have advanced technical and communication skills, are confident team-workers, independent researchers, good project managers and are at the leading edge of their specialism. Our courses will help you develop and refine these skill sets alongside your knowledge of the field.

This can help set you on the path to a career in laboratory research, clinical trial coordination, regulatory affairs, lab management, scientific publishing, or bioscience entrepreneurship. You'll develop the attributes needed to continue in academic research or move to work in small and large multinational companies in the biosciences sphere.
