Course content

This course provides postgraduate education in Analytical Bioscience, a specialism which is a major source of employment for scientists. Analytical Bioscience investigates the development and application of advanced analytical techniques in the area of biomedical sciences.This course will provide training in the methodological aspects of biology, which are important in many areas of drug discovery and design such as treatment for cancer and inherited disorders. The interactions between potentially harmful chemicals and living organisms at the molecular and cellular level will also be investigated. This course also investigates the possible sources of error in experimental and instrumental analysis thus allowing the correct interpretation of experimentally-derived scientific data. It is suitable for recent graduates, who did not cover this area in depth during their degree, and for established bioscientists who wish to up-date their knowledge. This course is two thirds taught material and one third research project.
