  • 4 year course.
  • 1 day per week.
  • 5 days study leave per year.
1 st year modules
1st year modules
  • Biochemistry
  • Human Form Human Function
  • Human Health, Disease Prevention and

Treatment

  • Human Physiology
  • Molecules and Cells in Health and Disease
  • Professional Studies in Healthcare Science
2 nd year modules
2nd year modules
  • 15 and 30 credit modules.
  • Biology of Disease
  • Molecular and Cellular Biosciences (30 credits - year)
  • Biomedical Science Practicals: Microbiology, Genetics, Biochemistry.
3 rd and 4 th year
3rd and 4th year
  • 1.5 days per week.
  • 1 day at university and ½ day in lab (Honours Project).
  • Advanced Topics in Healthcare Science
  • Evidence-based Practice
  • Gene Manipulation
  • Medical Genetics
  • Biomedical ethics
honours project
Honours Project
  • Compare Hams, Changs’ and Amniomax for Solid Tissue Culture.
  • ? Difference between media for establishing and maintaining cell growth.
  • 3 extra flasks were set up on each sample with each of the different media.
slide7
Cell counts using a haemocytometer at 12, 15 and 19 days prior to harvest.
  • Compared mitotic index, length and spreading post harvest.
results
Results
  • 43 samples were tested
  • 14 samples failed to grow in culture
  • 3 infected.
  • Preliminary results: Amniomax established and maintained both skin and villi cultures quickest, followed by Changs and then Hams F10 (control) in both skin and villi samples.
results9
Results
  • Related Measures Analysis of Variance statistical analysis (ANOVA) showed no significant difference between the medias (culturing).
  • The Friedman statistical test: No significant difference between the media with respect to slide quality.
  • More samples need to be tested which may then show a significant difference between the three types of media.
further studies
Further studies
  • Set up samples in mixture of media.
  • Establish cultures in one type of media and then continue to harvest stage in another.
  • Use different hypotonic.
  • Use different ratio of fixative.
  • Use different concentration of BRDU for harvests.
advantages of part time degree
Advantages of part time degree
  • Obtain a degree whilst continually gaining experience at work.
  • Gain background knowledge.
  • Professional development.
disadvantages
Disadvantages
  • Can disrupt rotas within the lab as university days change each semester.
  • Hard work!
