The Reach Cambridge Biotechnology course introduces students to both the academic study of biotechnology and its exciting practical applications in the real world. This fast-growing area of modern science has the potential to fundamentally alter how we produce food, treat disease and create medicines. Topics covered include genetics, drug resistance, pharmaceutical science, biotechnological devices and drug design. Through lectures by experts in the field and hands-on practical sessions, students will be offered a unique insight into both the study of biotechnology at university and the vocational opportunities in the field beyond higher education.
This exciting and dynamic course will be a challenging but rewarding program for all those who have a passionate interest in biotechnology and biological sciences. During the Leader program, the Biotechnology course has a particular focus on cutting-edge research, future directions in the field, and the contentious ethical questions which the discipline continually faces.
