Short Description

<<Programme Video>>

The Biological Sciences major aims to nurture students to embark on scientific research, educational, professional or technical career after graduation. We provide a rigorous, broad-spectrum curriculum combined with specialization in major fields of biology such as cancer biology, nanobiotechnology, regenerative medicine, microbiology and neurobiology. The programme presents an in-depth study of biomedical and life sciences, with courses ranging from bioinformatics to biochemistry, genetics, cellular & molecular biology and immunology. With the two tailor-made practical courses as well as opportunities in research rotations and projects, students will gain a thorough understanding of how science is done with advanced technologies including omics & genome editing and state-of-the-art equipment in our research laboratories. It also nurtures students who are interested in pursuing postgraduate research training and undertaking a broad range of science-based careers.
