About the Program
The program will provide students with cutting edge knowledge and practical skills in the field biomedical sciences, with particular focus on advanced genomics, OMICs, genome editing, and cell biology. Specific emphasis will be given on the application of innovative technologies, such as applied bioinformatics, deep learning for genomics, and CRISPR, in the development of novel methods for the diagnosis and treatment of disease.
Students have the option to choose between a Thesis or a Non-Thesis program. The Thesis program offers an additional 4 credits and focuses on building extensive research skills and laboratory experience that will support graduates in pursuing further postgraduate study, such as a PhD, and a career in academia. A shorter-term Non-Thesis program, with an emphasis on taught modules, is best suited for students currently working in the biomedical/pharmaceutical industries or in the public sector, who wish to advance their careers through gaining additional knowledge in the field of biomedical sciences.
