Program Overview

This Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS) accredited MSc Biomedical Science (Medical Microbiology) course focuses on the prevention, diagnosis and treatment infectious diseases, incorporating the study of microbiology and virology.

Comprising of all aspects of human health and disease, biomedical science is one of the broadest areas of modern science and medicine. By developing new treatments and uncovering new knowledge which can save and improve lives, it is arguably one of the most important too.

Infection Sciences is one of four different and distinct laboratory disciplines within the field of Biomedical Science, as outlined by the IBMS, alongside Blood Sciences, Cell Sciences, and Genetics and Molecular Pathology. At Keele, we also offer an MSc Biomedical Science (Blood Science) covering clinical biochemistry, medical immunology and haematology, as well as a Graduate Diploma in Biomedical Science.

Building on existing, undergraduate knowledge in basic science, you’ll undertake higher level scientific training to develop the advanced laboratory and analytical skills needed in clinical or research contexts, fully aware of the potential implications for patients, health workers and research alike.
