University of Bristol
Biomedical science underpins and shapes modern medical processes and procedures. The principles we discover in the lab are put into practice, so we can gain an understanding of how the body works at a molecular, cellular, organ and whole-body level. This helps us to understand disease and to develop new treatments. Subjects covered include some disciplines such as physiology, pharmacology, neuroscience/psychology, biochemistry and cellular and molecular medicine. You will learn more about the human body and mind, its structure and function, what can go wrong and how drugs work to prevent and treat disease. The sessions on this stream will give you a deeper understanding of human health and disease and provide a greater feel for what it is like to study in this field at university. You will be given the opportunity to ask questions and find out about the wide variety of related career options.
