This highly flexible major will allow you to combine your scientific interests with fundamental concepts in cell and developmental biology.While the core subjects focus on the cellular mechanisms underlying how living organisms develop from a single fertilised egg, the broad range of electives permit you to focus on the cell biology of immunology, pathology, neuroscience, stem cells, plants or reproduction. You’ll also gain experience in the scientific methods and research skills used to investigate cell and developmental biology problems and how these are applied in biomedical technologies.
