Biomedical science or also known as biomedicine is one of the fastest growing areas of the health care research and industry. The development of advanced diagnostic tools and new treatments for the prevention and cure of human diseases relies on the integration of knowledge from various disciplines such as microbiology, biochemistry, pharmacology, immunology, anatomy, physiology, genetics and molecular biology to improve understanding on the pathophysiology of diseases and the physiological functions of the human body.
The Biomedicine postgraduate programme is designed to enable graduates to continue their study at a higher level by conducting research in various biomedical disciplines. The programme gives students practical background in biomedical techniques and applications while developing a strong understanding on how the human body functions in health and disease, and how treatments for disease are developed.
This programme is offered on a full time or part time basis. The aim of this programme is to produce scientific leaders in a wide variety of settings, including academia, the private sector and in government service.
