    lead to disease
  • The study of inheritance
  • How our DNA helps determine our individual
    characteristics and how mutations and changes can
    lead to disease

    disciplines to help us understand human health
    and disease
  • Topics include
  • The nervous system and respiratory diseases
  • Cancer biology and therapy
  • Clinical ageing and health
  • Genetics of common diseases
  • Medical biotechnology
  • Chronic disease

13
Exercise Biomedicine
Investigates the fundamentals of Biomedical
Science and Exercise Science Investigates how
the structure and function of the body is
influenced by exercise in health and disease.
Options in Psychology or Business allow you to
tailor your studies to areas that reflect your
personal interests Topics include Anatomy B
iomechanics and movement Exercise
physiology Physical activity, exercise and
disease Cardiac rehabilitation Neurorehabilita
