Health Sciences Facilities


Our specialist Health Sciences facilities are designed with your future career in mind, enabling you to gain practical experiences as part of your degree.

Biomedical Science LabsThe biomedical science teaching laboratories are large, modern and well equipped, allowing students to develop key competencies aligned with accreditation requirements. Students undertake essential practicals in core discipline areas which include microbiology and immunology, blood and cellular sciences, molecular biology and genetics, throughout their programme of study. Media screen and audio set-up enables interactive engagement between staff and students, ensuring an excellent learning experience is delivered during all laboratory sessions.

Health Assessment SuiteThe Health Assessment Suite involves the physiological assessment of human volunteers using a wide range of techniques. Some of these techniques include blood pressure measurements, arterial stiffness measurements using applanation tonometry, pulse oximetry, ultrasound measures including the assessment of blood flow to the brain, spirometry, exercise testing, and venous and capillary blood taking and analysis. Research conducted in the Health Assessment Suite has a particular focus on vascular health, which informs teaching in this area.
