Biomedical Sciences - Our Degrees

Understanding how the human body functions, both normally and when diseased, is central to the understanding of human health. Our courses provide a fascinating insight into how disease can impact on the normal functioning of the body, as well as the essential knowledge and skills to support a career choice within this field.

Our courses are delivered in our multimillion pound Rosalind Franklin Building, containing laboratories, teaching, learning and research space. To find out more about this state-of-the-art facility, visit: wlv.ac.uk/franklin


Facilities include specialised equipment for microscopy, cell culture, culture of microbes, protein synthesis and analysis, and immunological and molecular techniques. In addition, we also have a suite of physiological testing equipment in our Physiology Lab, plus use of patient simulators.
