About
This double degree will give you an insight into human and animal biology as you explore ways to improve health and treat disease.

Biomedical science at RMIT allows you to understand how the human body functions and the responses of the body to various diseases, exercise, diet, internal disturbances and environmental influences.

You will complete studies in cell biology, physiology, microbiology and molecular biology including proteomics and can also choose to study anatomy, neuroscience, cardiovascular biology, industrial microbiology and applied biochemistry.

You will learn how techniques in molecular biology and genetics are applied to problems including diagnosing genes that cause cancer, making crops and livestock less vulnerable to disease, and making food safer.

You will graduate with majors in microbiology, cell and molecular biology and an optional major of biochemistry, and have the qualifications to work in biotechnology and biomedical research.
