Biomedicine International Summer School
This summer school offers a unique experience in sampling one of the top research-driven biomedical curricula in the UK in the beautiful setting of Cardiff city centre.
The summer school programme is designed to provide you with an introduction to biomedical and biological research and the crucial role it has to play in developing solutions to modern day challenges on health care, climate and global resources.
The academic programme consists of a series of lectures delivered by lecturers and professors who are authoritative figures in the fields that they teach. These lectures will introduce you to the topics of cancer biology, respiratory disease, cardiovascular disease, molecular biology of pancreatic disease, neurological disorders, musculoskeletal disease, tissue engineering and the current research activities in these areas in Cardiff.
The Biomedicine International summer school also incorporates a social/recreational programme with the aim of introducing participants to contemporary British society and culture. A number of visits to cultural and recreational facilities in the UK will be included in the programme. The summer school is therefore also a good opportunity to meet new friends and to build up a rapport with other participants through work and recreational activities.
