A Master of Science is a graduate degree that can be obtained by students who have first completed a bachelor’s program in a similar field. An MSc typically takes about two years of full-time study to earn.
Knowledge from both biological and medicinal fields are utilized in biomedical science. Study in this area looks at the role of immunology and nutritional status as possible predictors for the health status of humans and animals.

While these diseases seem unrelated to each other, recent findings clearly established that their high prevalence in many areas of the world in general, and in Qatar in particular, is due to a combination of environmental pollution and heredity factors. The elevated levels of consanguineous marriages in Qatar and the Gulf region promote the expression of genetic mutations that trigger or favor these diseases, yet many of the molecular and cellular mechanisms involved remain elusive. ...
