Biological and Health Sciences

Biological sciences form the basis of many new areas of science and technology. They are the foundation of our understanding of a diverse range of subjects – from evolution, genetics and diversity to medicine, drug and human development.

Health science, on the other hand, is the application of science to health including the study of medicine, nutrition, and other health-related topics.

Our mentors have experienced both laboratory and industrial applications of their expertise and are ready to share their insights with you. Read more below!
