The Master in Medical Science is a research-based programme for students who have graduated from a bachelor’s degree in medical science or a related field and wish to develop research capabilities in the field. It aims to nurture students with holistic approaches and includes opportunities for national or international collaborations, specialised training activities (seminars, workshops, etc), and a rich clinical research experience.

Medical science studies the biological mechanisms underlying the function of human body, with the emphasis on diagnosis, treatment and prevention of diseases. Research coverage of medical science is very broad and it ranges from basic biology to oncology; chemistry to pharmacology; and physics to radiotherapy.

In line with the departmental mission and vision, we undertake research in 4 key focus areas:


To improve the knowledge of diseases and understand the underlying causes, the molecular pathways and the genes involved in disease. This fundamental knowledge of disease can then be used to develop diagnostic methods.


To explore the use of modern technologies or natural resources to address diseases and any other medical challenges. This includes “proof of concept” studies or prototyping approaches.


To determine the pattern of distribution and effects of disease in the community so that the future occurrence of disease can be prevented. Observational studies can be used to study distributions and analytical studies are used to study the effects of disease.


To promote human health and subsequently life satisfaction for all at all ages. We measure, analyse and manage well being in response to uncertainty and with respect to ageing, nutrition, climate change, physical, mental and social health.
