Cell and Developmental Biology

Overview

We’re all made of cells, and we all start with just one. But what are cells made of? Learn how they work, and explore the genetic, molecular and cellular basis of development in a variety of organisms and experimental models.

See what happens when cellular processes are altered, resulting in developmental disorders or diseases like blindness, cancer or diabetes.

In this major, you’ll also consider ethical issues associated with new technologies, including IVF, birth control, stem cell technology and genetically manipulated foods and crops, to prepare you for possible careers in research laboratories and the medico-legal area.

You can study this major in the Bachelor of Biomedicine or Bachelor of Science.
