Course summary

Develop your understanding of human disease and learn to apply cutting-edge methodologies to help tackle global health challenges. Biosciences research has a huge impact on helping people live longer and healthier lives. With the World Economic Forum identifying healthcare as one of the top 10 Global Challenges for 2030, there is a growing demand for specialists in this field. This course provides you with a broad understanding of the molecular basis of biological systems, with a focus on how medical biosciences can address some of the world's biggest challenges in human health and disease. Specialise in medical biosciences By combining remarkable technological advances, with a deeper understanding of the human body, medical bioscience is enabling us to develop treatments that can save and improve people's lives. From creating artificial muscles to developing novel cancer treatments, the field is advancing rapidly. There are exciting developments in a multitude of areas including stem cell therapies, immunotherapies, neuroscience and developmental genetics.

  • Based within the Cell and Developmental Biology research group you’ll learn to apply cutting-edge methodologies, such as CrispR, to understanding the molecular and genetic basis of human disease.
  • You’ll work closely with researchers, whose work addresses important questions on how molecular, cellular, genetic and epigenetic processes underpin human development (such as stem cell technologies and regenerative medicine), human disease (such as cancer) and ageing (such as neurodegeneration).
