On this Medical Genomics course of London Metropolitan University you’ll enhance your knowledge of genomic science from a health perspective. As genetic testing becomes part of routine medical evaluations and more geneticists are needed to perform the tests, we can help develop your skills through unique research projects, outstanding teaching and high-quality facilities.
Our research-active staff will be joined guest lecturers from organisations such as Barts Health NHS Trust, Imperial College London, King’s College London, University College London, St George's Hospital and Brunel University. We also maintain a strong collaboration with the prestigious Colombian Institute for the Promotion of Higher Education (ICFES), providing you with the opportunity to sign up to our exciting international work exchange programme.
With your training in human genetics, many opportunities will be available to you upon graduation. Genomics is important in both public and private domains, and there is increasing demand for new graduates in a growing number of new genome centres and companies in the UK and abroad, such as the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute in Cambirdge and Medgenome in India.
