Medical and Biomedical facilities

As new courses, we’ve been able to design our degrees in Medical Sciences with a broad range of subjects and pathways that will enable you to tailor your experience at BU.

A major aspect of this offering is our investment in new, state-of-the-art facilities to support your learning. These range from a dedicated cell culture laboratory, to large new teaching labs spanning a gamut of disciplines, from biomedical and medical science to general biology and chemistry.
