PhDs in Biomedicine

Biomedicine studies theoretical aspects of medicine and puts biological and natural science concepts into practice. Biomedicine Bachelors and Masters gather knowledge from a number of related disciplines such as biochemistry, zoology, anatomy, genetics, physiology, pathology, botany, chemistry and biology.

Biomedical science graduates will acquire practical and analytical skills. They also have to be IT literate, to know how to use different software for special analyses. Another important ability would be the numerical skills; a biomedicine expert often uses mathematical and statistical means for research. Students will also develop important qualities like time management, project management and organisational skills. Biomedical degrees offer courses on topics such as tumour biology, genetics, epidemiology and biomedical research, immunology and pathology, biomathematics.

Career opportunities include areas that interact with medicine and health, such as engineering-based fields that solve biological and medical problems. Biomedical scientists work out a range of analytical and practical laboratory tests in order to contribute to the diagnosis and treatment of disease. Graduates are qualified to also work in academic research, pharmaceutical industry.
