A substantial component of the School’s programmes is delivered by academic staff within our Biomedical Sciences Section which is the largest academic section within the School and includes Human Anatomy, Medical Informatics, Medical Microbiology, Pathology and Physiology.
Comprising approximately 50 academic and 35 funded research staff, this Section is responsible for much of the pre-clinical education with our Medicine programmes and contributes strongly to Physiology, Radiography, Biomedical Health & Life Science degree programmes. It also comprises academic staff with expertise in molecular, proteomic, genomic, bioinformatics and computational biology.
The Section coordinates the teaching of over 75 modules to 750+ students. The majority of the School’s research activity and graduate programmes are also delivered by staff within this Section which has over 75 Graduate Research masters or doctoral students.
The group is highly research active and comprises a number of Principal Investigators based within the UCD Health Science Centre, the UCD Conway Institute, Systems Biology Ireland and UCD CASL.
