Biomedical Sciences

Biomedical Sciences aims to achieve excellence in Biomedical research and teaching.


Our research centres are tackling some of the major global health challenges facing our society and addressing fundamental questions about how we work to gain a better understanding of how we can treat disease and repair our bodies. Our BSc programmes take a thematic and progressive approach that are embedded in a research-led teaching environment coordinated by the Biomedical Teaching Organisation. We have a range of on-campus taught and research MSc, online distance learning and PhD programmes.
