Biomedical and Molecular Sciences MSc
School of Life Sciences
Gain a strong grounding in the knowledge and skills needed for further study in biomedical sciences or a career in biotechnology or pharmaceuticals
Dundee City Campus
Biomedical and molecular sciences are fast-moving fields that explore the complexities of biological systems, often to benefit human health through the discovery of treatments or cures for diseases. We have particular research strengths in these areas at Dundee.
This course focuses on key areas in the biotech and pharmaceutical sectors, and will help prepare you for a future in these industries. You'll gain knowledge and skills that employers are looking for – including an in-depth understanding of molecular and cellular mechanisms of a range of diseases, and how this can help develop better ways of diagnosing and treating disease.
You'll experience the latest technologies related to data analysis, cell imaging, protein and proteome analysis, and cell culture and manipulation – including of stem cells. You'll have access to drug discovery and phenotypic screening technologies that are of industry standard, which are rarely found in an academic setting.
Following the taught component of this course, you'll undertake a research project, working alongside University research staff at the forefront of their field. Our lab spaces are set up to encourage collaboration and networking, and you’ll become part of a diverse and international scientific community. You'll become an efficient problem solver and a successful project manager, developing skills that will prepare you for your future career in academia, industry, or a range of other exciting possibilities.
Biological Sciences and Biomedical Sciences courses
This course can also be studied with modules in Business, Entrepreneurship, Management, and Marketing.
“I expanded my practical laboratory skills and in addition improved my problem solving and analytical thinking. Ultimately, the skills I developed and the wide range of experience I encountered during this time helped build my confidence as a research scientist and gave me the courage to progress to a full-time PhD”
