Course summary

IF YOU ARE LOOKING TO APPLY FOR YEAR 1 AND YEAR 2 PLEASE REFER TO BSc (Hons) BIOLOGICAL SCIENCES (UCAS code C100)The surge in biotechnology industries in Scotland has led to predictions of a rise in employment in this sector and excellent career prospects for graduates.The Cell and Molecular Biology programme focuses on how human cells function in health and disease. Knowing how molecules, cells and organs interact enables the biologist to more fully understand the factors that control cell growth and division, and what makes some individuals more susceptible to disease than others.A greater understanding of the underlying processes in diseases such as cancer could lead to the development of more accurate diagnostic methods and new drug therapies or cures. The foundation levels of the programme include physiology, microbiology, biochemistry and genetics. In Years 3 and 4, cellular communication, drug action and molecular medicine are studied in depth. Students engage in high levels of practical scientific work, improving their laboratory skills. A five-day practical molecular biology workshop brings together theory and practice. Graduates go on to careers in research and development, for example in research institutes or in industries such as pharmaceuticals and biotech.
