Biomedical Science: M.Sc. in Molecular Biology and Medical Genetics Course



Biomedical science is a dynamic field that combines aspects of biology, medicine, and other sciences to understand the mechanisms of human health and disease.
Our understanding of modern molecular biology and medical genetics, and its application in medical research, has led to huge advances in the diagnosis, prognosis and development of clinical treatments of human diseases.
This comprehensive course M.Sc. in Molecular Biology and Medical Genetics provides a broad grounding in medical genetics, with the emphasis on the molecular aspects of medical genetics, particularly in relation to human health and healthcare.
Aims to provide students with an in-depth knowledge of human disease genetics using molecular genetics, quantitative and statistical genetics approaches, and how this can be applied to improve healthcare through application of diagnostic tests and therapeutic agents.
