This module explores mammalian cells, tissue and organ systems. Topics include the fundamental chemicals of life, structure and function of cellular organelles, membrane trafficking, cell cycle and division, study of genes, genetic variation and heredity.
The principles of physical chemistry, inorganic compounds and their reactions are presented to provide sufficient background knowledge and understanding of chemistry required for other subjects taught in the diploma course. The module covers the structure of matter, electronic structure, stoichiometry, periodic table chemical bonding, redox reactions, thermochemistry, kinetics, chemical equilibrium, and chemistry of solutions, including acids, bases and buffers and their applications.
This module provides students with a fundamental analytical knowledge of mathematics essential for the study of biomedical and pharmaceutical science. Students will learn the concepts of functions, exponential and logarithmic functions, differentiation and its applications, integration and its applications, and differential equations.
During my final year, I had the opportunity to work on a project that investigated the effects of aristolochic acid on bile duct and liver cancer cells. It was an eye-opening experience as I learned to apply the knowledge taught in school in a real-world setting. I am grateful for the support of my lecturers and the opportunities provided by NP. I would not be where I am today without the guidance from my supportive lecturers.
LSCT has provided me with extensive hands-on training and critical thinking skills, both of which are necessary to pursue a career in research.
The BMS course provided a firm foundation for me to understand the scientific background in clinical trial protocols. This helped me secure my first two jobs at pharmaceutical MNCs, and ultimately paved my career path.
