Course Summary

PgDip Biomedical Science

With constant developments across all disciplines, biomedical science is a fast-paced, ever-evolving field. Looking for a programme that will help you deepen your theoretical knowledge, hone your clinical skills and broaden your professional experience? We give you a suite of award pathways that allow you to explore different research areas and develop your specialisms.

Key features

  • Tap into the expertise of academic lecturers and tutors actively researching and developing new techniques in modern biomedical science. Our programme has a strong international reputation in translational research, with significant financial investment in laboratory infrastructure.
  • Hone your skills and critical thinking, and grow your clinical experience.
  • Work with high specification, regularly updated facilities serving post-genomics and proteomics, cell biology and imaging.
  • Enrich your learning with teaching, expertise and insight from our NHS partners, plus members of the University of Plymouth.
  • Deepen your understanding with modules that explore modern practice, emerging techniques and the impact of new technologies on research methods.
  • Benefit from a programme that’s reinforced by the research, facilities and expertise of the Centre for Biomedical Research and the Systems Biology Centre. Attend research events and work with leading scientists in a wide range of fields, including immunology, haematology and genomics.
  • Gain the skills needed to study at masters level with specialist modules on research techniques and project development.
  • Part of the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS) accredited suite of MSc Biomedical Science awards.
  • Choose to study full-time – this is particularly suitable if you are undertaking an intercalated degree from medicine or dentistry. Taught modules will be delivered in the autumn and spring terms, and your MSc will be completed over the course of one year.
  • Join the programme if you're an intercalating medical student and have successfully completed your fourth year, or have already completed an undergraduate course.

Modules

This module will provide a comprehensive overview of basic genomics and proteomics. An understanding of the latest experimental techniques currently applied to study these 'omics' will be delivered. The emphasis will be on microarray techniques, next-generation sequencing and high-throughput mass spectrometry for the analysis of molecules at the level of genome, transcriptome and proteome.
