Exciting news this month from the school – it will form two new schools at the University from 1st August 2013.
School of Biomedical and Healthcare Science (In the new faculty of Medicine, Biomedicine and Dentistry) –
Head of School, Prof Neil Avent
School of Biological Sciences (In the new faculty of Science & Environment)
Interim Head of School, Dr Mairi Knight
The new school of Biomedical & Healthcare science will offer exciting new opportunities to study alongside medical and dental students, and a new health science campus at Derriford is being planned to relocate our research labs there. Our long term objectives will be to encourage our Biomedicine, Healthcare science and Human Bioscience graduates to study graduate entry medicine, a higher research degree, or career progression in the NHS or Industry. Further updates will be posted on this Blog as the school develops.
