Course summary

Overview

Interdisciplinary training in biomedical data analysis

Biomedical research generates large volumes of complex data, encompassing: genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, phenotypic data, epidemiology and clinical trial investigations, to inform our understanding of disease mechanisms.

This course will equip you with the skills to utilise these data sets in the development of precision medicine. Data impacts on the creation of new tailored therapies, aiding earlier diagnosis and the selection of optimal treatment regimens for patients who may be suffering from disorders ranging from common disorders of complex aetiology (such as cancer or cardiovascular disease) to the more rare Mendelian disease (such as muscular dystrophy).

This distinctive course has been designed to directly meet research needs in industry and academia where there’s a need for scientists with both biological knowledge and the computational, statistical and analytical skills to drive genomic precision medicine.

Learning and teaching

On this course you’ll be taught by our expert academics, from lecturers through to professors. You may also be taught by industry professionals with years of experience, as well as trained postgraduate researchers, connecting you to some of the brightest minds on campus.

Career opportunities

As outlined in the recent publication ‘Science Industry Partnership: Skills Strategy 2025’, there is a demand for the skills that you will develop on this programme.
