Our Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS)-accredited course gives you a thorough grounding in the theory and practice of diagnosis and treatment of diseases and the underlying molecular and cellular biology, preparing you for a career in a range of biomedical fields. Biomedical science is fascinating. It is all about understanding how the human body works – both healthy and diseased. Our course will teach you the techniques and methodologies used to diagnose and monitor diseases, as well as how to identify treatments. You will cover key biological concepts starting from the molecular and cellular level, and encompassing human anatomy and physiology. Specialist aspects such as medical genetics and microbiology will be a part of your course; we will discuss how research in these field has impacted upon our lives, and its benefits and risks. Biomedical science overlaps with other disciplines, so we will explore how professionals from different teams work together. We will also look at the wider social, economic and ethical implications of biomedical science. By spending plenty of time in the lab, you will develop research, analytical and diagnostic skills. Through lectures and reading, you will develop your own ideas, then test them in practical experiments and critically review the results. We will introduce you to the statistics and software used in bioscience to enable you to analyse and present your data effectively. Your degree will culminate in a final year research project, which you will undertake in a field of your choice. Our facilities include specialist tissue culture and microbiology laboratories, as well as general teaching and research labs. We have an array of equipment such as thermal cycling equipment (for amplifying and quantifying DNA), flow cytometers, aggregometry (for measuring platelet aggregation), a range of microscopes including a confocal and a scanning electron microscope, and an intelliPATH immunohistochemistry slide-stainer. We maintain strong links to a number of hospitals within the NHS, and related industries within the East of England.
