This course is for you if you:

  • have an interest in how we diagnose disease
  • wish to study the genetic and cellular basis for disease
  • want to understand how we can treat disease
  • want to understand the principles of drug design.

During this course, you will:

  • be part of the medical and biomedical science industry
  • study the effect of our environment on our health in the birthplace of Charles Darwin. Walk Darwin’s thinking path at The Mount while pondering how we can use the principles of evolution to prevent disease, and sit in the library where Darwin was schooled.
