Course content

Biomedicine is a research area within which you can focus your studies as part of our suite of Biosciences research programmes (PhD, MPhil, MD).

Biomedicine focuses on the molecular mechanisms underpinning physiology, disease and the processes that drive repair and regeneration. The Division has a broad strength that spans biochemistry, cell biology, molecular genetics and signal transduction. The groups within Biomedicine focus on a variety of biological systems both in vivo and in vitro, and augment studies on human cell lines and tissues with studies in model organisms such as the mouse and Xenopus.

Biomedicine is a well-funded Division with excellent modern facilities for a broad range of techniques. It has close links with The European Cancer Stem Cell Research Institute, the Cardiff Institute of Tissue Engineering and Repair (CITER), the Arthritis Research UK Biomechanics and Bioengineering Centre and also with the Cardiff CR-UK Cancer Centre. The Division also has numerous global academic and industrial partners.
