Lincoln College

Biomedical sciences

Lincoln admits two students each year to this exciting new course.

In the first year you will develop a strong foundation in all aspects of the subject. You will attend lectures, practical classes and tutorials that will introduce you to systems science (Behaviour, Brain and Body) and to cell biology (Cells, Molecules, Genes), as well as classes in essential physical, mathematical and statistical concepts. 

In the second year  you will be able to chose from a range of topics in biochemistry and genetics, pathological processes, neuroscience and psychology, and physiology and pharmacology.

By the beginning of your third year, you will have chosen whether you wish to graduate from the course with either a BA degree in Cell and Systems Biology or a BA degree in Neuroscience. Students electing for the pathway in Cell and Systems Biology will study themes from two of five specialised options (Neuroscience; Molecular Medicine; Myocardial, Vascular and Respiratory Biology; Infection and Immunity; Signalling in Health and Disease), whereas students electing for Neuroscience will select two from around twenty Psychology advanced courses to study alongside themes from the specialised Neuroscience option. The course in the third year is intended to encourage both in-depth, focussed study, and also integrative thinking that seeks out connections between different research disciplines.

You will find further information on the course on the University website here

The College tutors for the Biomedical Sciences are Professor David Vaux, Professor Nigel Emptage, (Medical Sciences and Neuroscience);  Dr Paul Azzopardi (Psychology);  Dr John Vakonakis (Biochemistry).
