BSc (Hons) Cell and Molecular Biology
The Cell and Molecular Biology programme focuses on how human cells function in health and disease. The surge in biotechnology industries in Scotland has led to predictions of a rise in employment in this sector and excellent career prospects for graduates.
Knowing how molecules, cells and organs interact enables biologists to more fully understand the factors that control cell growth and division, what makes some individuals more susceptible to disease than others and the development of more accurate diagnostic methods and new drug therapies or cures.
The programme covers physiology, microbiology, biochemistry and genetics, cellular communication, drug action and molecular medicine. You will engage in high levels of practical scientific work improving your laboratory skills, including a five-day practical molecular biology workshop.

l couldn’t have asked for a better place to learn. Without a shadow of a doubt I owe my career to GCU. The opportunities I had as a student were second to none. Not just through the lectures and seminars but the high-quality equipment and facilities students have access to such as the television and radio studios.
