Course Summary

This fast-growing area of modern science has the potential to fundamentally alter how we produce food, treat disease and create medicines. Topics covered include genetics, drug resistance, pharmaceutical science, biotechnological devices and drug design. Through lectures by experts in the field and hands-on practical sessions, students will be offered a unique insight into both the study of biotechnology at university and the vocational opportunities in the field beyond higher education.
