Course content

This course provides an understanding of the molecular basis of biological systems and focuses on applying this knowledge to improve human health and disease, food biosecurity and sustainable biotechnologies. The unique course structure is designed in consultation with clinical and industrial partners to give you the specialist knowledge and practical skills needed for a career in molecular biosciences.

Specialising in Medical Biosciences, you'll be based within the Cell and Developmental Biology research group at Bath where you’ll learn to apply cutting-edge methodologies, such as CrispR, to understanding the molecular and genetic basis of human disease. You’ll work closely with researchers, whose work addresses important questions on how molecular, cellular, genetic and epigenetic processes underpin human development (such as stem cells technologies and regenerative medicine), human disease (such as cancer) and ageing (such as neurodegeneration).

This course is for you if you’ve graduated from a bioscience, medical, veterinary or related discipline and you’re interested in a career within the field of molecular biomedicine.
