Course Overview

Biomedical scientists develop new treatments and therapies for human illnesses, diseases and disabilities. Operating theatres, accident and emergency (A&E) and many other hospital departments would not function without biomedical scientists. For example, in A&E, you would work in the blood sciences department, testing emergency blood transfusions for blood groups and samples from patients who have overdosed or had a heart attack.

Biomedical science is at the heart of medical breakthroughs in healthcare and could cover anything from creating artificial muscles from cells to treat diseases and illnesses, to looking at the brain to understand stress and anxiety.
