MAJ01104 Biomedical Science

This major provides students with in-depth understanding of how the body works at the cellular level, what causes disease and the techniques of laboratory diagnosis of disease, which include expanding areas of molecular-based diagnostic techniques.

Students gain the underpinning knowledge and laboratory skills required to participate in research aimed at disease prevention and treatment.

Core study areas include biochemistry, clinical microbiology, haematology, histology, human anatomy and physiology, immunology, molecular biology, parasitology and pathology.

Students obtain a solid background in the biological and medical sciences, and practical experimentation. A biomedical science major provides excellent underpinning knowledge for entry into a postgraduate medicine program.
