Overview

Train in the latest DNA-based laboratory techniques used in Biotechnology, while gaining in-depth knowledge of the key medical aspects of this rapidly growing industry.

Our course focuses on medical biotechnology, using living cell materials to research and develop pharmaceutical and diagnostic products for the treatment and prevention of human diseases.

We’ll cover medical biotechnology, molecular genetics and bioinformatics, DNA analysis techniques and ethics, as well as the research methods you’ll need for the final part of your course: the research project.

There’ll be practical exercises, research assignments and field trips throughout the course and we continuously update the content, with our own research findings and broader industry developments. Expert practitioners and researchers will teach and train you.
