Human Physiology

This module outlines the principles of homeostatic control mechanisms operating at molecular, cellular, tissue, organ and whole body levels. It also explains cellular homeostasis, nutrient and energy balance, thermoregulation and cardiovascular homeostasis. The module aims to investigate homeostatic principles applied to selected physiological systems, to illustrate mechanisms and processes through which the human body maintains the constancy of the internal environment

Cell Biology

This module aims to provide an introduction to cellular components and processes involved in the birth, life and death of cells. It also looks at a range of biological analytical techniques used for elucidating cellular structure and function. The role of abnormal cellular function in pathology is also highlighted in this module.

Medical Bioscience Key Skills

This module aims to develop a range of skills related to medical science and research. This includes: enabling students to identify appropriate research designs and analysis of protocols to answer specific research questions; familiarising students with techniques to avoid plagiarism and its importance in research; allowing students to analyse secondary data through the use of appropriate statistics; and developing in students the ability to critically evaluate primary literature.

Immunology

This module aims to provide a sound understanding of the immune system as an integrated system of tissues, cells and molecules. It also focuses on clarifying the functions of the immune system in health and disease. The concept of how dysfunction of the immune system is associated with disease is also explored in this module. Through this module students are made to critically examine current and future therapeutics for these diseases.

Medical Biochemistry

This module aims to consolidate students

Metabolism

This module aims to discuss the layout of major pathways of intermediary metabolism and to understand their regulation and integration. It also focuses on consolidating understanding of metabolic adaptations to acute and sustained exercise and to fasting.

Molecular Pathology

This module aims to examine molecular mechanisms of cellular adaptation to environment and to study examples of disease arising from dysfunction at the genetic, transcriptional or translational level

Cellular Pathology

This module aims to provide students with a comprehensive overview of the key concepts, techniques and current laboratory practice in Cellular Pathology (Histopathology and Cytopathology). The module will allow students to develop an understanding of the role this biomedical science discipline plays in the diagnosis, assessment and treatment of disease

Applied Molecular Biology

This course aims to give an in-depth understanding of research methodologies applied in modern molecular biology. It is intended primarily as preparation for postgraduate research, but also serves to highlight and consolidate understanding of the key processes applied within the biotech industry.

Molecular Genetics

This module take students through a study of molecular genetics as associated with prokaryotes and eukaryotes. On completion of the module students should have a comprehensive understanding about the nature and character of prokaryote and eukaryote genomes, aspects of their continuing evolution, protocols for their manipulation and associated consequences.
