Led by an experienced teaching team actively involved with human health research, our MSc Biomedical Health will help you to increase your understanding of what current diseases are impacting global human health, the damage they have on the body and how we can prevent this disease burden.

The diversity of research projects underway, which you have the opportunity to contribute to, is vast – covering issues such as potential new treatments for ovarian cancer and the role of the Human Papilloma Virus in the development of head and neck cancers.
