Master of Biomedical Sciences
The Master of Biomedical Sciences by coursework aims to promote and develop research in discipline areas such as Chemistry, Microbiology and Immunology, and Physiology and Pharmacology.
What is biomedical science?
Biomedical science is integral to human and veterinary practice. It looks at how the body works and investigates ways to treat diseases through advanced tools and strategies.
Students can do a general course or choose from three majors:
- Aquatic Microbiology
- Clinical Microbiology
- Physiology and Pharmacology
These majors offer advanced level training in aquatic pathobiology, and clinical microbiology, and physiology and pharmacology, relevant to the domains of human and veterinary endeavour.
Your research topic
Applicants need to discuss their proposed research topic with an appropriate research supervisor.
