5 HUMAN BIOSCIENCES Will gene therapy become an established treatment for cancer? What are the ethical issues associated with the use of stem cells? Human biosciences focuses on the scientific basis of human health and disease by developing an understanding of how we function at the molecular, cellular and physiological levels and considers how advances in this exciting field impact on society. Strong foundation in the core human bioscience disciplines of cellular and molecular biology, genetics, immunology, physiology, biochemistry and microbiology and their relationship with health and disease. Opportunities to include elements of psychology. Explore themes of personal interest at all stages including a range of in-depth final year option modules focussed on the latest scientific developments. A substantial final year research project chosen from a diverse range of relevant topics offered by academic staff. Benefit from close links with the Peninsula College of Medicine and Dentistry. Optional placement opportunities provide students with relevant work experience. Personal development and support afforded by a personal tutor in individual and small group meetings. Graduates are expected to have a thorough knowledge, understanding and practical experience of human biosciences. Subject specific skills will be complemented by a suite of generic skills. Emphasis is placed on developing the ability to work independently, to design and analyse studies, and to write and present results. We aim to produce graduates who are critical, rational and creative thinkers with the skills and confidence to shape and achieve their career goals and aspirations. Students are taught by internationally recognised researchers active in fields directly related to this programme. Current staff interests include antenatal diagnosis, bacterial pathogenicity, bone cell biology, cardiac physiology, cell signalling, dietary interventions, hyperbaric oxygen therapies, mitochondrial dysfunction, mucosal immunology, mutagenicity, neuroscience and pain, post genomic technologies, and toxicology among others.
