Overview Study Biomedicine and you’ll get to apply your passion for biology to tackle human diseases such as cancer, arthritis and cardiovascular disease – placing you right at the forefront of the battle to improve human health. Our degree course will teach you how to apply cellular and molecular techniques to the understanding and treatment of human diseases. You’ll explore areas such as human physiology, antibiotic resistance, pathogens and genetics. And you’ll discover topics including ophthalmology, metabolic disorders and gastroenterology. You’ll train in a wide range of modern biochemical techniques as well as the practice of testing ideas by experiment. And you’ll be able to take advantage of our teaching laboratories, which offer state-of-the-art equipment and facilities. About This Course Throughout your time at UEA you’ll be learning to put your skills and knowledge to use in the fight against some of the most serious illnesses we face today. Our Biomedicine degree has been designed to allow you to develop and apply your skills in the medically-related biological sciences. Our multidisciplinary approach takes from both biology and chemistry, combining the elements that are relevant to modern medicine. You’ll be taught by world-class academics, hospital consultants and practicing biomedical scientists, and you’ll have access to some of the best facilities in the country, including our new £34 million undergraduate STEM teaching laboratories, the Biomedical Research Centre, the Bob Champion Research and Education Building, and the Norwich Medical School, which is based on campus. These facilities house a unique bio-bank facility to store DNA and tissue samples and host cutting-edge research into cancer, antibiotic resistance, and musculoskeletal and gastrointestinal disease. As you progress in your studies, you’ll have the opportunity to specialise with our module options. Popular topics currently on offer include Cancer Biology; Cell Biology and Mechanisms of Disease; Infection and Immunity; Evolution in Health and Disease; Embryo Development and Stem Cell Biology; Molecular Enzymology in Biology and Medicine; and Genomes, Genes and Genomics. And in your final year you’ll complete a substantial research project under the supervision of experts in biomedical research. Biomedicine is an active and growing area of research within our School of Biological Sciences. Our academics are interested and excited by it, and it shows. Our course material is relevant and up-to-date with the latest thinking. And 100% of our biological sciences research impact has been recognised as ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’ (REF 2014). You will benefit from our enviable position as an integral partner of the Norwich Research Park, which is also home to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, and independent, world-renowned research institutes such as the John Innes Centre, the Sainsbury Laboratory, the Earlham Institute, and the new £75-million Quadram Institute.
