Help transform the way we detect disease, develop new treatments or sustainably feed a growing world population.
Specialise in cell biology to deepen your understanding of how cellular, genetic, and evolutionary processes affect everyday life.
Examine key concepts and techniques to understand genetic information and investigate cellular processes and cell development in a range of organisms. You’ll apply microscopic techniques to observe how cells function in healthy and diseased states.
The growing availability of biological data is allowing unprecedented discoveries in areas as diverse as biotechnology, human medicine, agriculture, and conservation biology. You'll work alongside and learn from leading scientists who have contributed to breakthroughs across biotechnology, and animal, plant or medical sciences.
In your final year, you’ll undertake your own independent research project under the guidance of an academic supervisor and present your findings to the scientific community.
Deepen your scientific expertise by combining your specialisation with a major or minors from a wide range of science disciplines. Or broaden your skill set even further by choosing from 46 minors in other study areas, including languages, communication, design and economics.
With a qualification in advanced science, you'll be well placed to progress into a higher degree by research and kickstart your research career.
Specialising in cell biology will also equip you for a range of career opportunities within biotechnology, agriculture, medicine, conservation or government agencies.
