Life Sciences - Biomedical Sciences

Stream Representative
Jonathan Fry:

Biomedical Science encompasses those subjects which provide much of the academic basis of modern medicine. With a particular emphasis on Human Biology and wherever possible with a quantitative perspective, this stream aims to provide a foundation in structure and function, together with an introduction to disease and therapeutics.


Students who complete this stream will understand:

  • the molecular structure of cells and how molecules interact
  • the function and integration of the major organ systems of the body
  • the operation, function and pharmacology of the nervous system, with opportunities to pursue this at cellular and/or systems levels
