This course is designed to allow you to develop skills in the medically-related biological sciences. It adopts a multidisciplinary approach, blending the complementary aspects of the biological and chemical sciences relevant to modern medicine.
The study of biomedicine is an active and advancing area of research within the School of Biological Sciences, ensuring the relevance and up-to-date content of our degree course. It has proved to be an extremely popular programme for students who are keen to apply cellular and molecular research techniques to the understanding and treatment of human diseases.
Leading academic researchers carry out much of the teaching, while biomedical scientists and consultants from Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital contribute to the teaching of clinical aspects of the course . Alongside benefitting from the expertise of medical professionals and academics, you will also have access to the incredible facilities across our affiliated institutions, including the Biomedical Research Centre and the Norwich Medical School which is based on campus.
