Study type Taught


Understand, diagnose and combat human disease

Never before has this area of study been so publicised and been so important to the modern world, this is your chance to make a real impact in the field. On this course you’ll gain an understanding of human disease through a series of specialist taught modules covering topics such as infectious and non-infectious disease, advanced immunology, medical diagnostics and treatment of infectious diseases and cancer.

To complement this you will also learn about an exciting range of modern techniques and methodologies that underpin contemporary biomolecular sciences. These will include: molecular biology, structural biology, cell imaging and flow cytometry, high throughput techniques such as bioinformatics, and transgenic organisms.

To help you develop and specialise, in the final part of the course you’ll receive substantial subject-specific training through an independent laboratory-based research project in an area of infection, immunity or human disease related to your course options and interests. There is currently a noticeable skills gap in the sector, your Masters programme has been specifically designed to enhance your employment prospects.

If you choose to study at Leeds, you’ll join a faculty highly ranked in the UK for its research impact in the recent Research Excellence Framework (REF 2021), and you’ll graduate with the solid base of scientific knowledge and specialist skills highly valued by employers.
