Welcome to the Department of Applied Biomedical Science
This Department, one of ten within the Faculty of Health Sciences, is responsible for undergraduate teaching leading to a B.Sc. (Hons) in Applied Biomedical Science (previously Medical Laboratory Science). The specific aim of the degree programme is to produce high quality graduates with expertise in all the experimental and routine aspects of a pathology laboratory and with the theoretical knowledge and practical skills required for the study and interpretation of pathological processes. Such graduates can also work in industry or pursue a career in research.
The Department has an active research programme, in areas which include:
- Genetics of Osteoporosis
- Inflammation, Atherosclerosis and Myocardial Infarction
- Genetics of Tetrahydrobiopterin Deficiences and
- Transcriptional Regulation and Control of Globin Gene Expression
The Department is currently expanding its doctoral programme.
I invite you to explore the Department’s webpage and to contact us, should you require more information about the Department.
