What is Biomedical Sciences?
The dynamic world of Biomedical Sciences underpins much of modern healthcare. As illnesses and treatments become more sophisticated, so too does the need for more advanced understanding of the human body and the effects drugs and diseases have.
At Nottingham, Biomedical Sciences is made up of several key disciplines:
- Pharmacology: the effects drugs have on the body
- Physiology: how the body works
- Anatomy: the structure of the body
- Biochemistry: the study of chemical processes in living organisms
- Neuroscience: the study of the central and peripheral nervous systems
Dr. Yvonne Mbaki talks about Biomedical Sciences at the Malaysia Campus.
