M.Sc. in Biomedical Science is approved by the University Grants Commission (UGC). This program is for students who have a strong desire to understand fundamentals of Basic Medical Sciences and aspire to be leaders in Biomedical research and development.
The Master’s program in Biomedical Sciences provides a unique combination of fundamental research and clinical application, with a special focus on multidisciplinary aspect such as biochemical, molecular and patho-physiological mechanism of diseases. Investigating and understanding the diseases give the skill and knowledge to work towards discovery and development of preventive/ therapeutic drugs. There is an increasing prevalence of noncommunicable diseases as a result of lifestyle changes and urbanization in India. Infectious diseases are also still persisting as major health problems in Indian population. These are the challenges that are to be tackled in the new millennium, so there is a need to understand the pathogenesis and to develop the new markers and diagnostic protocols with respect to the relevant field. The requirement for Biomedical Scientist is important because they are expected to bridge the gap between biomedical research, diagnostics and clinical applications.
We look for applicants who are curious, determined and creative. We take into account special talents or successes that might not appear on a transcript. If this sounds like you, choose APU.
