Biomedical and Molecular Sciences (MSc)
Biomedical and molecular sciences are fast-moving fields that explore the complexities of biological systems, often to benefit human health through the discovery of treatments or cures for diseases. We have particular research strengths in these areas at Dundee.
This course focuses on key areas in the biotech and pharmaceutical sectors, and will help prepare you for a future in these industries. You'll gain knowledge and skills that employers are looking for – including an in-depth understanding of molecular and cellular mechanisms of a range of diseases, and how this can help develop better ways of diagnosing and treating disease.
You'll experience the latest technologies related to data analysis, cell imaging, protein and proteome analysis, and cell culture and manipulation – including of stem cells. You'll have access to drug discovery and phenotypic screening technologies that are of industry standard, which are rarely found in an academic setting.
Applicants should normally have, or expect to have, a first or upper second class BSc honours degree or an equivalent qualification in a scientific discipline in the field of biological, biochemical or biomedical sciences.
