This course provides detailed knowledge of key concepts in cell technology, bioprocessing and molecular analysis and how these approaches are applied in areas of specific relevance to medical and pharmaceutical applications such as drug design and discovery, immunology and microbial infection.
You’ll explore and critically evaluate the technologies driving discovery and modification of natural compounds for use in medicine; the relationship between progress in our understanding of disease and the development of diagnostics and treatments; as well as the application of theoretical concepts to the use of biological systems for production of drugs.
Cell Technology; Business and Bioethics; Research Skills; Biotechnology and Drug Discovery; Molecular Pathogenesis of Microbial Infection; Research Project
One optional module from:
Advanced Immunology; Current Practice in Drug Development; Molecular Pharmacology and Toxicology.
A 2:2 Honours degree or above in bio-molecular sciences, such as biotechnology, molecular biology, genetics, biochemistry and biomedical sciences.
A degree equivalent or lesser qualifications may be considered if you have sufficient relevant work experience gained in biotechnology related industries and research laboratories.
