Haematologists specialise in disorders of the blood and blood forming tissues, and their contribution to patient care is fundamental and wide ranging. Whether you're analysing data from patients' samples, matching donated blood with someone who needs a transfusion or researching cures for blood cancers, your work will improve and save countless lives.

Why study MSc Biomedical Science Haematology and Transfusion Science at Middlesex?

Our Biomedical Science courses have a burgeoning international reputation, due to our world class research in areas including biomarkers, public health and bio modelling. Our Centre for Investigative and Diagnostic Oncology has pioneered techniques for cancer diagnosis and treatment, and the Haematology department is very active in research into blood cancers, HIV and AIDS.

Our course has a strong practical element,...

Our MSc Haematology course is a broad one, incorporating elements of microbiology and clinical biochemistry too. You’ll study four core modules, common to all four postgraduate biomedical science courses: advanced bio analytical techniques, biomedical ethics and law, laboratory leadership and management, and experimental design and statistics. Alongside these you’ll study four specialist haematology modules: blood analysis and pathology, haemato oncology, haemostasis and transfusion science.

The core modules will cover how to design and carry out experiments and statistical analyses; literature searching, referencing and citation; techniques for analysing samples and molecules, including electrophoresis, gas and liquid chromatography, mass spectrometry and immunochemical techniques; aspects of managing a laboratory, from people management to business plans and budgets; safety, regulations and quality management; and ethical and legal issues, such as those surrounding research on animals and humans, assisted reproduction and genetics.

The specialist modules will cover the components of human blood and disorders that affect them, techniques for diagnosing and monitoring disease, and the analysis of blood test results. You’ll look at blood cell formation, blood count, haemoglobinopathies and types of anaemia; clotting abnormalities; cancers of the blood and bone marrow, myelodysplasia and MPD; and cutting edge techniques such as flow cytometry and immunophenotyping that can now shed light on their genetic basis. In addition you’ll cover blood transfusions and blood donation: blood types, blood typing and tissue typing techniques, haemolytic disease of the newborn, reactions to transfusions, safety measures and care of blood products, and how to manage of a laboratory.

You’ll then work on a dissertation, which will involve planning and carrying outan independent and original research project in a laboratory or clinical setting. You’ll work under the guidance of a supervisor, who you’ll meet with for at least an hour a week, and can base your project at your workplace if you’re in relevant employment. You’ll carry out a literature review and draw up a research proposal, design and conduct your experiments, collect and analyse your data, and present your findings in a 12,000 to 15,000 word report and a presentation to your tutors and fellow students.

The course will also improve your IT, literacy, numeracy, teamwork, organisational and analytical skills. If you don’t want to or aren’t able to complete the full MSc, you can also obtain a PGCert or PG Dip, studying four modules for a PG Cert and eight for a PG Dip, omitting the dissertation.
