Course Description

This unique MSci draws on world-leading expertise in medicine and business to create medical scientists who are not only familiar with the latest medical innovations (e.g. regenerative medicine, stem cell therapy, imaging and nanomedicine) but also know how to translate these advances into clinical realities through enterprise.The four-year MSci includes an industrial placement and research project in medical innovations.

  • Medical advances are transforming the way we diagnose and treat disease. To translate these opportunities into commercial realities that benefit patients, medical scientists need to be able to make connections between medical science, business and enterprise.

  • The programme's emphasis on medical innovations and technology transfer will provide students with broad career prospects in biomedical science, biomedical business and technology transfer.

  • The degree is designed to inspire a spirit of innovation and enterprise; to create doers - capable of both recognising commercial opportunities in medical science innovation and exploiting them.

  • The programme offers the flexibility to join other applied medical science BSc programmes to learn about different aspects of medical science in years two and three (e.g. in sports medicine, nutruition or cancer) or to continue on the Medical Innovation and Enterprise degree.
