Department of Biomedical Sciences

The Department of Biomedical Sciences was established in January 2014 to develop strategic growth areas in the life sciences. It has the aim of becoming a leading centre for biomedical education and cutting-edge research on cancer, neuroscience and regenerative medicine. Besides carrying out internationally competitive research in the biomedical sciences, promotes interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary collaboration, and conducts translational research from bench to bedside, the Department provides programmes that best equip graduates for future careers in healthcare, pharmaceutical, biotech and related industries. It currently offers programmes in a stimulating teaching, learning and research environment.

The Department of Biomedical Sciences offers two undergraduate majors:

  • BSc Biological Sciences
  • BSc Biomedical Sciences

Our Target

The Biomedical Sciences major emphasizes the integration of basic fundamental knowledge in biomedical sciences with investigative skills and state-of-the-art technologies to enable students to understand the causes, diagnoses and treatments of human disorders and disease. The programme is designed to prepare graduates for employment in biomedical research, medical device and diagnostics and biotech and pharmaceutical industries. Our unique industry-informed curriculum provides students with extensive exposure to medical laboratory technology and modern biotechnology, and applied research and clinical/industrial training opportunities through our strategic partnership with the healthcare and medical laboratory sectors and biotech and pharmaceutical industries.

課程著重生物醫學的基礎知識與研究技能和尖端技術的整合,讓學生瞭解人體功能失調和疾病的病因、診斷及治療。課程旨在培養學生於畢業後從事於生物醫學研究、醫療儀器和醫學診斷、生物技術和製藥等行業。

課程透過我們與健康護理、醫學實驗室以及製藥和生物技術行業的合作夥伴關係,讓學生在製藥及生物技術研發和醫學實驗室的實習培訓來廣泛接觸和掌握醫學檢驗技術和現代生物技術。
