Discover ARU: book your place at our next postgraduate Open Evening.
Develop your skills in major areas of biomedical science, including molecular cell biology, biomedical genetics and specialised topics in medical diagnostics. You'll focus on rapidly-evolving research into the applications of bioscience in healthcare whilst working in our impressive Cambridge Science Centre laboratories.
Biomedical science explores our understanding of health, disease and ageing in human, animal and microbial systems. PhD candidates are encouraged to take an active role in the department's research community in areas of cancer cell biology, cardiovascular disease, microbiology and molecular biology.
Develop your scientific skills and explore new specialisms. If you’re a working biomedical scientist take a step towards being a Chartered Scientist status by studying on our Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS) accredited distance-learning course.
Pursue your research studies with a pioneering group in analysis-based research and make a valuable contribution to scientific understanding and techniques in the forensics field. PhD candidates are encouraged to take an active role in the department's research community in areas of crime scene and evidence, forensic analysis and genetics.
Expand your knowledge in all areas of forensic science, from gathering evidence at the crime scene itself, right through to the courtroom. Develop your skills and knowledge on our accredited course, as you collect and analyse evidence, equipping you to become a confident and effective practitioner.
Make a substantial contribution to knowledge in your specialty, in the shape of published research. Work in an inspiring multidisciplinary setting that reflects latest trends in the field.
Focus on advanced pharmaceutical skills including dosage, approaches and techniques, before moving on to the pathway of a drug from initial discovery to extensive clinical trials and regulatory approval. Let our SuperLabs and Nanotechnology Research Lab become your workspace as you carry out safe, ethical experiments while meeting world-class pharmaceutical standards.
Combine doctoral research with your full-time career, and make a substantial contribution to the development of professional practice in your area. We can offer supervision in specialisms including animal and environmental sciences, biomedical science, built environment, computing, engineering, molecular biology, psychology, sound engineering or sport and exercise science.
If you’re passionate about sport and exercise science and want to have an impact on future generations, the research skills you’ll develop on our MSc Sport and Exercise Science course will prepare you for a rewarding career. Our British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES) accredited lab allows you to secure real-world experience and employability skills, working across a number of performance sport settings.
Pursue original research in physiology, psychology, biomechanics or coaching/pedagogy, in highly-equipped surroundings with an innovative, expert team.
