Biomedical science has direct relevance to everyone; it has a defining influence on our quality of life, the pursuit of healthy living and our capacity to diagnose and treat disease. Biomedical Science encompasses a range of biological, medical and health-related disciplines, which address global biomedical challenges such as obesity, cancer, neurological diseases and cardiovascular disease. It draws on the disciplines of anatomy, physiology, biochemistry and neuroscience to understand normal human biology (including our evolutionary history). It also uses the paraclinical disciplines of microbiology, pathology and pharmacology to understand and treat human disease. You’ll have the opportunity to pursue advanced study in your biomedical science specialisation.
Emphasis is placed on cutting-edge research and its translation to healthy living and to clinical settings of diagnosis and treatment of disease. While research training within a specific discipline is available as part of the course (e.g. advanced laboratory skills and their application within an independent research project), this is not obligatory. Therefore, you’ll be able to focus on building discipline-specific knowledge and an understanding of how this knowledge is applied. Regardless of the amount of research training undertaken, the course places strong emphasis on developing research literacy, with thorough interrogation of the scientific literature and its communication.
