Course Aims

This is an advanced course on a variety of topics in biomedical sciences, with examples including cutting edge scientific discoveries and advanced techniques for modern biomedical sciences research. Advanced seminars will be given by a group of lecturers. The topic will be announced in advance when this course is offered. It will cover a broad range of topics and serve as a useful supplement to the specialized advanced courses existing in the programme.

This course aims to enable the students to achieve the following objects:
• Identify and explain, to an appropriate extent, the real-world and technological importance/relevance of the subject matters;
• Describe the selected experimental and theoretical principles of Biomedical Sciences and its applied ramifications;
• Apply such principles to phenotypical and analytical studies in Biomedical Sciences; and
• Compare and relate the selected topics and generate conceptual links between different research fields, in order to establish a broader perspective on these foundational topics.
