Related fields in the discipline are life science, health science and medicine. Studies in life sciences encompass all fields of science that involve the scientific study of living organisms such as plants, animals, and human beings. Medicine and biology are the major fields of study the area. As such, life sciences are closely linked with health science, which is a multidisciplinary field based on the natural science such as biology, chemistry and physics.
The course will cover key issues in pharmacoepidemiologic and drug safety research. Special topics include databases and molecular pharmacoepidemiology. Students will learn about the typical problems (e.g. confounding by indication, rare side effects) and approaches to deal with these problems in the practice of pharmacoepidemiology.

Eating is an indispensable human activity. As a result, whether we realize it or not, the drive to obtain food has been a major catalyst across all of history, from prehistoric times to the present. Epicure Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin said it best: "Gastronomy governs the whole life of man."
In this project module you will undertake individual investigations within a range of defined topics: stem cells, emerging infectious disease, the human senses and coevolution. You’ll need access to scientific literature, probably from electronic library sources.
This course will examine DNA profiling and how it can be invaluable when solving crimes. The course will be arranged around an online crime scene. Participants will identify evidence for analysis and process the results to identify which suspect committed the crime. The crime scene investigation will involve examining case studies, and how DNA evidence is evaluated and the discussion of the ethical issues involved.
Infectious disease affects all our lives to varying degrees, often making front-page news: ‘New resistant strain of TB’, ‘Will bird flu cross over to humans?’ ‘Hospital infections reach epidemic proportions’, etc. This module approaches infectious disease from several perspectives – exploring the underlying biology, epidemiology, ecology and evolution of pathogens in relation to the extraordinary immune defences of their human hosts.
