Biomedicine is the science that underpins all of medicine and medical research. This summer school will introduce you to our cutting-edge research in this area and give you the opportunity to explore a variety of topics related to biomedicine and human disease.

The Biomedicine and Human Disease Summer School is delivered by the School of Biosciences which is internationally renowned for its world-leading research in human physiology, human structure, biochemistry and genetics. Our courses are informed by our research strengths, and our courses are delivered by scientists undertaking pioneering research - from developing new treatments for cancer, to tackling the issue of antibiotic resistance.

You will also have the opportunity to get hands-on and practice contemporary biomedical and biochemical and bioinformatic techniques via a range of practical workshop and laboratory sessions.

In addition to a valuable learning experience, you will embark on two cultural trips within Wales. Both Wales and the UK are uniquely rich in history, architecture and culture and our Summer Schools are sure to give you unrivalled personal, social and academic benefits which will enhance any CV or resume.

Ensuring the safety and welfare of our staff and students is our priority. We are closely monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, and will continue to evaluate our summer school offering in line with government guidelines relating to COVID-19. If we need to make changes to our 2021 summer school offering in line with government guidelines, we will keep you up-to date.
