Why study Biomedical Science?
Did you know biomedical research receives, both nationally and internationally, around half the total research dollars available to all of science?
This underscores the relevance of biomedical science in today's society as it provides the foundation for modern healthcare and answers our questions about the human body and treatment of disease.
Your study of biomedical science will commence with a broad focus on the human body at the molecular, cellular and whole body levels. In the third year, you will choose specialised study in subject areas including physiology, pharmacology, anatomy, developmental biology, human genetics, neuroscience, human immunology and infectious diseases.

The Bachelor of Advanced Science (Honours) majoring in Biomedical Science is an excellent choice if you are considering a career in fundamental or clinical research.
Breakthroughs in understanding human disease or its control (vaccines for polio, measles, influenza, antibiotics, cancer genetics) have been, and continue to be, dependent on fundamental research into biological mechanisms at the cellular and molecular level.
Clinical research is essential to determine the efficacy of new treatment options. Through your studies, you can build a career designed to contribute to these and new breakthroughs to support modern healthcare.
The Advanced Science (Honours) (major in Biomedical Science) can lead to:
- Research work in pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies developing diagnostics for disease and new drugs for treatments
- Academic and research positions in universities, research institutes and hospitals
- Working in scientific sales and marketing
- Basis for entry to PhD program
