MSc Biomedical Science
Biomedical science focuses on the understanding of human health and disease, to develop treatments that ultimately save and improve lives. This research-informed MSc Biomedical Science programme aligns to our research within our newly formed Plymouth Institute of Health and Care Research (replacing the Institute of Translational and Stratified Medicine – ITSMed).
Enabling students to broaden their theoretical knowledge, hone practical/clinical skills, and help support those who are particularly interested in pursuing research at postgraduate level.
First choice for health
Delivered by professional experts, our programmes are tailored to you and your career. Together, we address today's most challenging healthcare issues, through research-informed teaching and active, real-world learning.
Available MSc Biomedical Science (specialist) pathway options:
Students enrolling on the MSc Biomedical Science programme take core modules in molecular biology, and research design and development, plus one of the following specialist pathway options.
