The module aims to examine advanced bioanalytical techniques that are used in biomedical research, for the analysis of products, for improving disease understanding, and for the analysis of disease biomarkers. It also provides a detailed understanding of the principles, theory and practice of bioanalytical techniques, including safety, instrumentation, sample preparation techniques together with analysis and interpretation of analytical data.
The module aims to provide insight into a range of ethical and legal issues that relate to professional practice, to research with human and animal subjects, and to human reproduction. It also aims to give you a broad overview of the relevant current UK ethical and legal regulations for research using human tissues. The module will further explore the ethical issues present in the rapidly developing area of genetic technology, including genetic testing and selection, genetic engineering, and the concept of genetic disease.

This module aims to provide you with a sound knowledge of how immunoassays may be used in the diagnosis of disease. You will also learn how current immunological methods such as vaccination and development of monoclonal therapeutic antibodies have evolved, and how they may be adapted for use in the clinical setting.
This module aims to provide students with a sound knowledge of the concepts and language of Immunology. This will enable students to understand how animals and, in particular humans, respond to, and eliminate, infection caused by a wide range of different microorganisms.
This module aims to develop the concepts and language of immunology that are, or may be, applied clinically.
