Honours in Molecular and Biomedical Science

Study honours in molecular and biomedical science become immersed in critical research into the molecular basis of human disease, animal and plant evolution.

When you choose honours in molecular and biomedical science, you become a member of the School of Biological Sciences and part of a research group.

You'll work alongside scientists at the cutting-edge of their field and complete a research project in the general discipline areas of biochemistry, genetics, microbiology, or immunology. There's also related theoretical work appropriate to these disciplines.


Honours handbook

The molecular and biomedical science honours handbook contains an overview of the program and activities, example timetable and a summary of the assessment process.

Honours projects

Supervisors with available molecular and biomedical science projects have been added to the 'honours project finder'. If you are interested in their research you should talk with the respective supervisors to discuss potential projects.

If you are interested in a particular area of research that's not included, talk with our honours coordinator Professor Robert Richards to discuss other opportunities to develop an honours project.
