    The Biomedical Sciences major consists of courses prescribed by professional schools (medical, dental, osteopathic, veterinary, pharmacy, graduate) as essential to the successful completion of a professional school curriculum, plus electives necessary to provide educational breadth and maturity. In short, the Biomedical Sciences major is designed to help students gain a comprehensive understanding of human life sciences and is a gateway to many exciting and meaningful career paths.

    The four general areas of emphasis in the Biomedical Sciences curriculum are  Microbiology ,  Anatomy ,  Physiology , and  Nutrition . Faculty in the Biomedical Science Department are involved in a wide variety of research projects, providing numerous opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students to gain real laboratory experience. Areas of research include bacterial genetics, cancer biology, cardiovascular disease, epidemiology, human anatomy, immunology, neuroscience, obesity, parasitology, physiological biochemistry, stem cell biology, and toxicology to name a few.

    A new bioink that may enable the more efficient and inexpensive fabrication of tissues and organs — and ultimately accelerate advances in regenerative medicine — has been synthesized by researchers at the University of British Columbia’s Okanagan campus.

  • The new School of Biomedical Engineering The Faculties of Applied Science and Medicine have announced the joint establishment of the School of Biomedical Engineering (BME) at UBC, effective July 1, 2017.
