Course content

Our one-year full-time course provides broad training to prepare you for a career in biomedical research.

The programme provides an excellent background in biomedical research, and will integrate chemical, biological and physiological aspects in a unified approach.

This course teaches a mechanistic approach to the problems encountered in molecular and cellular biomedical science.

It also emphasises an investigative and empirical approach to the practical problems encountered in experimental and human biomedical science.

This stream covers the basic physiology of cardiac function, the pathophysiology of the major cardiovascular diseases (cardiac ischaemia), and the pathophysiology of the major respiratory diseases (asthma, COPD and cystic fibrosis).

You will study the advantages and limitations of animal models of respiratory and cardiovascular disease and the rationale behind the design of novel treatments for respiratory and cardiovascular disease.
