The Biomedicine course at the University of East Anglia  will teach you how to apply cellular and molecular techniques to the understanding and treatment of human diseases. You’ll explore areas such as human physiology, antibiotic resistance, pathogens and genetics. And you’ll discover topics including ophthalmology, metabolic disorders and gastroenterology. 

You’ll train in a wide range of modern biochemical techniques as well as the practice of testing ideas by experiment. And you’ll be able to take advantage of our teaching laboratories, which offer state-of-the-art equipment and facilities.

Throughout your time at UEA you’ll be learning to put your skills and knowledge to use in the fight against some of the most serious illnesses we face today.

Our Biomedicine degree has been designed to allow you to develop and apply your skills in the medically-related biological sciences. Our multidisciplinary approach takes from both biology and chemistry, combining the elements that are relevant to modern medicine.

You’ll be taught by world-class academics, hospital consultants and practising biomedical scientists, and you’ll have access to some of the best facilities in the country, including our undergraduate laboratories, the Biomedical Research Centre, the new Bob Champion Research & Education Building and the Norwich Medical School, which is based on campus. The Bob Champion Research & Education Building houses a unique bio-bank facility to store DNA and tissue samples, and is where they’re currently undertaking cutting-edge research into cancer, antibiotic resistance, musculo-skeletal and gastrointestinal disease.

As you progress in your studies, you’ll have the opportunity to specialise your studies with our module options. Popular topics currently on offer include Cancer Biology; Cell Biology and Mechanisms of Disease; Infection and Immunity; Evolution in Health and Disease; Embryo Development and Stem Cell Biology; Molecular Enzymology in Biology and Medicine; and Genomes, Genes and Genomics. And in your final year you’ll complete a substantial research project under the supervision of experts in biomedical research.
