About the Course

Medical Biotechnology is the application of exciting advances in molecular and cell biology to medicine, agriculture, and the environment. Through modern technologies such as genetic engineering, biotechnology is shaping diverse aspects of medicine (cancer, vaccines, therapy and diagnosis of genetic diseases), food production (transgenic plants), and industry (bioremediation). The Bachelor of Medical Biotechnology (Honours) provides you with the tools and knowledge to work in both medicine and bioremediation. It encompasses the rapidly evolving fields of proteomics, genetic engineering, and advanced techniques in molecular analysis. A new generation of pharmaceuticals, vaccines, hormones, and anti-inflammatory agents are being developed using these technologies. This degree will prepare you to work in biomedical science research and the biotechnology industry, which is at the forefront of these developments. Honours is built into the fourth year of this program, during which you will undertake a supervised research project.
