Take part in cutting-edge research and its translation to healthy living, clinical diagnosis and treatment of disease with a specialisation in one of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Human Biology, Neuroscience or Physiology.
About The Course
You are able to focus on advancing your knowledge through coursework or research. Biomedical Science has increasingly embraced the overarching disciplines of human genetics, epigenetics and genomics to understand how gene-environment interactions define the human phenotype in its normal and diseased states.
The Biomedical Science program at The University of Western Australia places strong emphasis on developing research literacy.
Biomedical science has direct relevance to everyone; it has a defining influence on our quality of life, the pursuit of healthy living and our capacity to diagnose and treat disease.
Biomedical Science encompasses a range of biological, medical and health-related disciplines, which address global biomedical challenges such as obesity, cancer, neurological diseases and cardiovascular disease. It draws on the disciplines of anatomy, physiology, biochemistry and neuroscience to understand normal human biology (including our evolutionary history). It also uses the paraclinical disciplines of microbiology, pathology and pharmacology to understand and treat human disease.
You’ll have the opportunity to pursue advanced study in your biomedical science specialisation. Emphasis is placed on cutting-edge research and its translation to healthy living and to clinical settings of diagnosis and treatment of disease. While research training within a specific discipline is available as part of the course (e.g. advanced laboratory skills and their application within an independent research project), this is not obligatory. Therefore, you’ll be able to focus on building discipline-specific knowledge and an understanding of how this knowledge is applied.
Graduates will be well positioned to pursue careers in international research laboratories, government agencies as well as the private sector. The course may provide graduates with a pathway to a PhD (an alternative to the conventional Honours pathway) depending on their unit selection. Graduates may also progress to professional degrees including medicine, dentistry and pharmacy.
