Synopsis

This course introduces students to foundational concepts in biomedical science through the study of the human body from the earliest stages of life through to old age. The course includes an introduction to the molecular basis of cells that comprise the human body, human reproduction, basic Mendelian genetics and ageing processes. It also emphasises the importance of ethics and professional practice in biomedical science by exploring some of the human rights controversies associated with past biomedical advances.

This course contains a highly recommended residential school for external students and highly recommended on-campus laboratories or practical classes for on-campus students (non-attendance will mean the student misses both an element for assessment preparation and an element of assessment).
