Overview

Biomedical scientists work at the cutting edge of research and medicine, helping to solve some of the most threatening diseases and conditions facing mankind.

St George’s has enjoyed an outstanding track record of research and innovation in infectious disease ever since the ‘father of vaccinology’ Edward Jenner, based here, created the world’s first vaccine (against smallpox). More recently, our research has included a focus on tuberculosis, malaria, HIV in low and middle-income countries and Covid-19.

We offer four pathways in Biomedical Science – in Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR), Infection and Immunity, Molecular Mechanisms of Cancer, and Reproduction and Development. Originally established in 2007, they have been growing in strength and reputation ever since, and provide excellent preparation for either a PhD and research within an academic or industrial setting, or a career in the biomedical and medical sector.

This specialist pathway focuses on research being used to enhance diagnosis, prevention and treatment of infectious disease and conditions linked to immune system function. You will develop a better understanding of specific infections and immune responses to them, including tuberculosis, malaria, MRSA and many other viral, bacterial and parasitic infections afflicting humans and animals.

Career

If you want to pursue a career in biomedical research – whether in academia, industry or government – our course provides a solid foundation which can accelerate your career. On completion, you will be equipped with practical research-based training and skills to plan, conduct, publish and obtain funding for successful research, all vital for career progression.

The depth and quality of the academic research that you will undertake on your nine-month project will provide you with significant research skills and experience, putting you in a good position to apply for a PhD, which many of our students choose to do.

Transferrable skills in critical thinking, communication skills, time management, planning and logistics and data analysis make you well-equipped for a wide range of careers outside the lab, such as medical writing, biomedical marketing, health communication or teaching.

Many St George’s graduates have gone on to work in a variety of exciting and fulfilling careers in the pharmaceutical and biotechnical Industries. They have found work with contract research organisations like Immunocore company in Cambridge and academic institutions, such as Imperial College London, the University of Birmingham and here at St George’s. Roughly one in 10 go on to apply for graduate entry medicine.

If you are interested in a career as a biomedical/healthcare scientist in the NHS, you can undertake the NHS Scientist Training Programme following graduation.
