Descripción

Overview
Haematologists specialise in disorders of the blood and blood-forming tissues, and their contribution to patient care is fundamental and wide-ranging. Whether you're analysing data from patients' samples, matching donated blood with someone who needs a transfusion or researching cures for blood cancers, your work will improve and save countless lives.
Why study MSc/PGDip/PGCert Biomedical Science (Haematology and Transfusion Science) at Middlesex University?
This Masters programme has a strong practical element, with an emphasis on developing laboratory skills and gaining hands-on experience of diagnostic techniques. It also incorporates elements of microbiology and clinical biochemistry and you'll be able to study and learn within the University's specialist laboratories which include a modern, well-equipped cell culture facility, fully-equipped proteomics facilities and a microbiology lab. You will have access to a molecular biology laboratory for techniques such as DNA sequencing, real-time PCR, electrophoresis and HPLC. You'll also learn to use cutting-edge techniques such as MALDI-TOF mass spectrometers and flow cyto meters.
The Biomedical Science courses at Middlesex have a burgeoning international reputation and the University's strong links with London hospitals and NHS Laboratories ensures that you will be studying the latest developments, practices and research. Our Centre for Investigative and Diagnostic Oncology has pioneered techniques for cancer diagnosis and treatment, and the Haematology department is very active in research into blood cancers, HIV and AIDS.
If you do not wish to study the full MSc, you can apply to the PGDip where you study only eight modules, omitting the Dissertation, or a PGCert where you study only four modules.

Course content

What will you study on the MSc/PGDip/PGCert Biomedical Science (Haematology and Transfusion Science)?

This course will cover the components of human blood and the disorders that affect them, techniques for diagnosing and monitoring disease, and the analysis of blood test results. You’ll look at blood cell formation, blood count, haemoglobinopathies and types of anaemia such as clotting abnormalities, cancers of the blood and bone marrow, myelodysplasia and MPD. You’ll also study blood transfusions and blood donation including blood types, blood typing and tissue typing techniques as well as haemolytic disease of new-borns, reactions to transfusions, and safety measures and care of blood products. In addition, you will explore the ethical and legal issues which can surround specific types of research such as assisted reproduction and genetics, and human or animal research.

What will you gain?

As well as in-depth knowledge of your subject, you will also gain a sound understanding of how to design and carry out experiments, statistical analyses as well as techniques for analysing samples and molecules. You will also be proficient and capable in all aspects of managing a laboratory, including people management, business plans and budgets, safety regulations, and quality management.

  • Modules
    • Advanced Bioanalytical Techniques (15 credits) - Compulsory

      The module aims to examine advanced bioanalytical techniques that are used in biomedical research, for the analysis of products, for improving diseases understanding and for the analysis of disease biomarkers. It also provides a detailed understanding of the principles, theory and practice of bioanalytical techniques, including safety, instrumentation, sample preparation techniques together with analysis and interpretation of analytical data.

    • Biomedical Ethics and Law (15 credits) - Compulsory

      The module aims to provide insight into a range of ethical and legal issues that relate to professional practice, to research with human and animal subjects and to human reproduction, particularly various forms of reproductive technology. It will also aim to give students a broad overview of the relevant current UK ethical and legal regulations for research using human tissues. The module will further explore the ethical issues present in the rapidly developing area of genetic technology, including genetic testing and selection, genetic engineering, and the concept of genetic disease. After an introduction to basic ethical theory and legal principles, the focus of the module will be on exploring ways in which, by applying theoretical considerations to practice, ethical and legal issues can be critically analysed and addressed.

    • Blood Analysis and Pathology (15 credits) - Compulsory

      This module aims to introduce principles and diagnostic techniques of general haematology. It looks at the individual components of normal human blood in detail, and explains the molecular mechanisms of haematological diseases affecting each component. The module also analyses the role of the haematology laboratory in diagnosis and treatment of patients with haematological abnormalities.

    • Experimental Design and Statistics (15 credits) - Compulsory

      The module aims to provide students with the tools required to design effective and efficient experiments and to test scientific hypotheses. The module will also equip students with the tools necessary for statistical analysis in a hypothesis testing context.

    • Haemato-oncology (15 credits) - Compulsory

      This module aims to introduce specialist diagnostic techniques used in haemato-oncology. It provides deep appreciation of the cellular and molecular mechanisms of leukaemias, lymphomas and myelomas. It also analyses the role of the haematology laboratory in diagnosis and treatment of patients with these conditions.

    • Laboratory Leadership and Management (15 credits) - Compulsory

      The module aims to provide students with current theories and approaches to leadership and management in order they can bring about effect positive change in the team or organisation that they lead or manage.

    • Research Project (60 credits) - Compulsory

      Module aims to develop students' skills in planning and execution of an analytical, laboratory-based study and critical evaluation of real research results drawing on their acquired knowledge from other modules. In addition, the module aims to develop students' communication skills to enable them to communicate their findings in written and oral form.
