We’re famous for our cancer research. The molecular laboratory is used for modern molecular biology techniques, such as molecular cloning.

Tissue culture laboratory

You can practice on laminar flow hoods and incubators which are used on a variety of human cell types including cancer cells, normal cells and those from patients with various inherited genetic diseases.

Microscope laboratory

Use our 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional fluorescence microscopy which are utilised in the imaging of human cells and chromosomes.

Fly laboratory

Fruit flies are used to help you research and study the genetics of ageing.


These machines are used to amplify DNA and electrophoresis gel to help you progress your knowledge in the studyof DNA.

Study biomedical sciences courses at Brunel

Flexible and compressed hours enabled me to work more efficiently, engaging more with my students and permitted me the quiet times for writing grants and papers. Such that after 10 years of being a Reader, I have now been promoted in 2020 to Professor.

Studying Biomedical Sciences at Brunel University London has been one of the most positive and important opportunities I’ve had the fortune to be given

Alexia, Undergraduate


From UK

During my degree I’ve learned about the development of cancer down to the cellular level, and increased my knowledge on all the different proteins and stages involved from mutation to cancer formation, invasion and progression. I’ve found it fascinating.
