Overview

Key facts

Lancaster University's Biomedicine (Hons) offers more flexibility than our IBMS-accredited BSc Biomedical Science by allowing you to tailor your degree to your personal and professional interests within the field of biomedicine.

You will study biochemistry, cell biology, genetics and physiology - which are at the heart of modern medical and health research. These subjects are taught with a particular emphasis on the molecules and mechanisms fundamental to life processes and how these are disrupted by disease.

In your first year, you will gain a through grounding in the general areas of biomedicine through the study of 15 wide-ranging core modules, including Biomedical Science in Practice, Infection and Immunity, and Protein Biochemistry.

In your second and third years, you will study a small number of core modules such as Medical Microbiology and Medical Genetics. You will then select your remaining modules from a wide range of options including: Cellular Pathology, DNA Technology, Clinical Immunology, and Tropical Diseases.
