Personalised Medicine: Hope or Hype? - STEMM i-Explore module

Undergraduate students can take a for-degree-credit module from outside of their discipline in Year 2. The modules are called I-Explore Modules and the NHLI runs the STEMM Module on 'Personalised Medicine: Hope or Hype?' in the Autumn and Spring terms each year.

This module will familiarise you with the cutting-edge advances in several STEMM disciplines that have contributed to the growth of personalised medicine, engaging with its pros and cons from the standpoint of different groups, political standpoints and cultural sensitivities.

Find out more on the Year 2 STEMM modules or academics on the personalised medicine module.
