Biomedical scientists provide the foundation of modern healthcare and assist in developing treatments for diseases. Through cancer screening, diagnosing HIV, designing new drugs and managing food poisoning and infection control, biomedical scientists are making incredible advances in modern medical science. Working in partnership with doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals, they carry out clinical tests, evaluate the effectiveness of treatment and research the causes and cures for disease. By understanding how the human body works and what goes wrong in disease, biomedical scientists apply their knowledge to develop new treatments.This brand new, three-year program provides you with both the breadth and the depth of modern biomedical science. Your courses will cover the broad areas of molecular and cellular biology through to body systems. Take the opportunity to specialize in one or more of these areas in your third year if you wish. You'll learn the scientific process through activities ranging from experimental design and hands-on experiments to computer modelling.
