The program offers something truly unique to our students through early clinical exposure from Year 1, research that takes place on the MBRU campus, and affiliations with local and international healthcare institutions. Our Master of Science in Biomedical Sciences ensures the students develop the theoretical and practical skills required in biomedical sciences, with a focus on research, genomics, and cellular biology. Our PhD in Biomedical Sciences focuses on broader themes of medical and biomedical sciences that capitalize on the areas of strength within MBRU.
