Applications in Medical Biotechnology provides students with an opportunity to learn advanced practical biomedical sciences skills necessary to support their activity in a working laboratory or research setting. Students will further augment their theoretical knowledge in biomedical sciences with practical skills in molecular biology, cell biology and microbiology. This course will allow students to further enhance their learning by the application of the theoretical concepts and skills in a simulated research laboratory setting.

In some disciplines, students need to demonstrate competency before they can progress further in their studies. Competency involves the application skills and knowledge to a particular standard performance. Students need to pass all competency assessments in a course and reach a total passing of 50% to be awarded a passing grade. Competency Assessment Items are identified in the course specification.

Medical Biotechnology is the application of all of the biomedical science disciplines to produce a diagnostic, prognostic, preventative or treatment for disease. This second capstone course allows students to further develop their technical, quantitative and analysis skills in the biomedical science laboratory. These skills are necessary for students moving into graduate biomedical science careers or further research study.

This course contains a mandatory residential school.
