The department is active in the delta formed by the outpouring of knowledge from the fields of biology, chemistry, medicine and physics. The aim of the interdisciplinary education and research carried out here is to broaden our knowledge base and to convert knowledge into applications. In the midst of this interaction between the acquisition and application of knowledge are our students, who take up placements at clinics, hospital laboratories and companies.
At the Department of Biomedical Science, research is conducted primarily within biomedical technology and cellular and molecular biology, specialising in immunology and strongly featuring artificial and biological interfaces.
Most of the research at the Faculty of Health and Society is interdisciplinary, which opens opportunities for exciting fields of research beyond the subject divisions that have traditionally existed between medicine and social sciences.
Our researchers are continually challenging the ingrained preconceptions of research being curtailed by national and regional borders, by borders between scientific disciplines, between pure and applied research and between academia and the world of trade and industry. Collaboration with us can take many forms, linked both to our research and the education we offer.
We can offer continuing professional development for your staff in the form of courses tailored to meet your wants and needs. You will benefit from access to the latest research and to the disciplinary range offered by the University.
