A Masters degree in Biomedical Science (Research) may focus on the use of one or more disciplines for example, haematology, microbiology, nutrition and molecular biology to investigate an aspect of health and/or disease.
The research topic will reflect the candidates' own interests and the research expertise of their supervisors. Further information on the research areas of supervisors in these disciplines is available from the Web Access Research Portal (WARP) site.
The campus of study will vary depending on the location of the candidate, the supervisor and the research field.
