Develop a broad knowledge of the biomedical sciences from a research perspective, and skills that can lead to a range of careers in biomedical research and beyond. This course will prepare you to tackle global health challenges, such as antibiotic resistance, cancer and Parkinson’s disease. You’ll be trained to be a research scientist of the future by exploring aspects of modern biosciences related to humans and medical research. You’ll study a broad range of units on human health and the causes, prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease. Topics include genetics, genomics, human physiology, cancer, pathology, infection and immunity, molecular and cellular biology, biochemistry and pharmacology. This course has been developed in collaboration with the Department for Health and the Department of Pharmacy & Pharmacology at Bath to give you a greater exposure to subjects in human biology and pharmacology. In the first two years, you will study a set of core units from the Departments of Biology & Biochemistry, Pharmacy & Pharmacology and Health. This will give you a broad practical knowledge base of biomedical sciences and is enhanced in the second year with optional units. In the final year, you will have the opportunity to carry out a capstone research project. This course has a research career focus and is therefore not intended for subsequent registration by the Health and Care Professions Council. Instead, you will develop fundamental scientific and experimental skills, preparing you for work as a scientist in biomedical research. The Master of Biomedical Sciences (MBiomed) provides you with the same core skills and knowledge as the BSc but with a greater exposure to research and advanced practical techniques. You’ll study master's-level units and carry out a major research project, giving you ideal preparation for postgraduate study or a career in research.
