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.
