Course summary

From cancer-screening to blood transfusions, from infections to genetic diseases; Biomedical Scientists research the causes and diagnosis of diseases and the effectiveness of the medicines that cure them. You apply the concepts of biochemistry and cell biology to the study of health and disease in the human body. Our multidisciplinary approach means you learn skills that are at the forefront of advances in medical research. At Essex, our research focuses on genetic diseases, infection and immunity, and age-associated conditions such as cancer. On our BSc Biomedical Science, you study areas including:

  • The human immune system
  • Pathogenic and non-pathogenic bacteria
  • Haematology and blood transfusion
  • Cell pathology
  • Mechanisms of neurological diseases
You discover the molecular basis of cellular dysfunctions, and describe modern strategies to diagnose and treat them. Visit our biomedical science subject page for more information and content.
