Course overview

Medical Biology is a popular and fascinating field of study concerned with a detailed understanding of the human body in health and disease. Central to Medical Biology are the techniques and methodologies used in the diagnosis of disease, its monitoring and identification of treatment procedures.

Genetics is fast becoming an integral part of medicine and has become particularly topical with the completion of the Human Genome Project and the associated revolution in the understanding of the genetic bases of disease. Our Genetics course therefore, fits in well in combination with Medical Biology, allowing you to explore the full breadth of Genetics, whilst placing particular emphasis on medical aspects.
