Course summary

Specialising in the emerging field of blood science, you’ll help diagnose, advise on and monitor treatment for patients with blood and bone marrow disorders, such as leukaemia and related blood cancers, anaemia, haemophilia and other bleeding and clotting problems. Accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS), our MSc draws on the experiences of practicing health professionals to examine clinical and research applications within clinical biochemistry, immunology, haematology and transfusion science. With access to state-of-the-art facilities, you’ll develop advanced laboratory techniques, and core practical skills in areas such as project management, writing grant proposals and business plans. Why study this course?

  • Accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS) – the leading professional body for scientists, support staff and students in biomedical science
  • £45m investment in state-of-the-art science facilities with fluorescence microscopes, electron microscopes and tools for molecular biology
  • Teaching is consolidated to support workplace or personal commitments – you'll only spend two days a week at the University if you're studying full-time, or one day if you're part-time
  • Engage with world-class researchers and biomedical scientists with expertise in parasitology, bacteriology and virology
  • Opportunity for holders of the IBMS Specialist Diploma to enrol with accredited prior certified learning, gaining exemption from two of seven modules
This IBMS-accredited MSc Biomedical Science (Blood Science) course focuses on the diagnostic, research and clinical techniques that rely on blood or its components to successfully identify, treat and manage medical conditions. Blood analysis helps to identify markers of disease and health conditions such as diabetes, HIV, cancer and coronary heart disease, while transfusions – of red blood cells, platelets and plasma – are used to treat patients having surgery or with medical conditions such as anaemia, cancer blood disorders. Comprising of all aspects of human health and disease, biomedical science is one of the broadest areas of modern science and medicine. By developing new treatments and uncovering new knowledge which can save and improve lives, it is arguably one of the most important too. *About Keele
