Months of entry
Explore the molecular, cellular, physiological and ecological mechanisms underlying the maintenance of health and development of disease in plants, animals and humans.
- Develop your knowledge using cutting-edge technologies, research and student-led learning methods
- Benefit from strong practical teaching and assessment methods and prepare for a career in research or health-related fields
- Learn from research-active staff who are experts in their field
- Experience the study of health and disease in a holistic biological context
- Conduct a research project covering the full ‘research arc’ from study conception to dissemination
The programme explores health and disease in a broad biological context, from molecular mechanisms to the eco-epidemiology of infections, or the biology of food security. This approach will equip you with knowledge of a range of disciplines while a strong practical focus on relevant techniques and real-life scenarios will provide key transferable skills for you to produce and present scientific data effectively.
The Biology of Health and Disease goes beyond the traditional view of symptoms-treatment. A wide diversity of organisms, from plant to invertebrates to mammals and humans, are key components of the programme.
