Theses and dissertations are documents that present an author's research findings, which are submitted to the University in support of their academic degree. They are very useful to consult when carrying out your own research because they:

  • provide a springboard to scope existing literature
  • provide inspiration for the finished product
  • show you the evolution of an author's ideas over time
  • provide relevant and up-to-date research (for recent theses and dissertations)

On this page you will find guidance on how to search for and access theses and dissertations in the Bodleian Libraries and beyond.


Terms you may encounter in your research.

Thesis: In the UK, a thesis is normally a document that presents an author's research findings as part of a doctoral or research programme.

Dissertation: In the UK, a dissertation is normally a document that presents an author's research findings as part of an undergraduate or master's programme.

DPhil: An abbreviation for Doctor of Philosophy, which is an advanced research qualification. You may also see it referred to as PhD.

ORA: The Oxford University Research Archive , an institutional repository for the University of Oxford's research output including digital theses.

DNA double helix in biomedical laboratory

Introduction to the Genome (Mandatory)

DNA is arguably the most important macromolecule in life and this module is designed to provide a solid foundation of knowledge on which students can build throughout the Bioscience degree programme. Beginning with the fundamental concepts of DNA and it’s role in heredity and the genetic code, the module will build up through expression of genotype to phenotype and the control of gene expression.

Human Physiology 1 (Mandatory)

A thorough understanding of human physiology and maintenance of homeostasis are key facets in a range of scientific disciplines. In this module, students will study the way in which different cells, tissues, organs and organ systems contribute to homeostasis from a theoretical perspective.

Biochemistry (Mandatory)

This module is designed to give a solid foundation on which to build further study in biological science.  It will investigate the fundamentals of biochemistry starting from basic atomic structure and bonding to then focus on the structure, function and metabolism of macromolecules. Students with differing levels of previous knowledge of chemistry and biology will be introduced to the range of processes taking place within the body at a molecular level.

Cell Biology (Mandatory)

Cells are the basic unit of all living organisms. In this module, students will examine the structure and function of cells, and the signals that control eukaryotic cell division, adhesion, migration, and programmed cell death. Students will analyse how cells contribute to animal physiology and disease, and be introduced to the techniques used to study cells in the laboratory.

Scientific Skills (Mandatory)

This module will provide you with the core skills required to carry out basic scientific procedures and communicate your research in an appropriate scientific format.  The module is based on a series of practical sessions and is designed to develop the skills required for subsequent advanced modules on the course.

Introduction to Biomedical Science (Mandatory)

This module provides introduction to the role of Biomedical Scientists within the current UK health care provision landscape. We will explore the role that Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS) play in informing and overseeing education, training and continuing professional development of biomedical scientists in the UK. Moreover, you will be introduced to professional standards and codes of practice specific to biomedical scientists.  

Research Methods and Scientific Communication (Mandatory)

This module prepares students for further study and employment by providing an understanding of what science is and how it works.  It introduces students to the principles of scientific research and the planning and design of experiments. Students will learn how to effectively analyse literature and communicate science in a variety of methods.

Medical Microbiology (Mandatory)

The aim of this is to provide you with an introduction to the biology of microorganisms, to include bacteria, viruses, fungi and protists. Furthermore, you will learn the basis of techniques and practical procedures commonly used in the field of microbiology, with an emphasis on analytical methods relevant in clinical analysis. In addition, the significance of microbes in health and disease will be investigated, also with the support of current research literature.

Data Analysis and Statistics (Mandatory)

Effective scientists need to understand how experimentation, qualitative and quantitative analysis drives science forward via the process of attempted falsification and how this is quantified and presented. This module prepares students for further study and employment by providing an understanding of inferential statistical analysis of scientific data. It will enable students to understand, interpret and apply most of the statistical techniques that they will see in published articles and allow them to emulate such analysis in their own work.

Biology of Disease (Mandatory)

Health and disease may be considered two extremes of a continuum. This module will explore the factors that set the graduations between the two extremes. This module is designed to review the nature of and causation of diseases, by considering environmental, genetic, and biologic factors and link the characteristics of disease to the signs and symptoms utilised in diagnosis.

Immunology (Mandatory)

An understanding of the immunological process has been fundamental to many of the advances made in science and medicine.  In this module, you will explore the cellular basis of infection via pathogens and the immunological defense system the body deploys in order to prevent the development of infectious disease.

Molecular Biotechnology (Optional)

This module introduces you to the principles of nucleic acids manipulation and cloning. The module will include a thorough background on DNA handling, manipulation and analysis. The module will then detail the standard techniques by which DNA can be differently inserted into prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells, and its expression monitored. Classic techniques will be presented together with the more advanced, cutting-edge technologies and approaches.

Dissertation (Mandatory)

The dissertation will provide an opportunity for individuals to develop an area of scientific interest arising from either course-based or work-based experience. The focus of the dissertation will be a research-based study, central to which will be some form of hypothesis testing or problem solving.  It will enable students to utilise practical, intellectual and decision making skills in novel situations.

Advanced Biomedical Practice (Mandatory)

This final year module aims to advance and apply your knowledge of what it means to be a Biomedical Scientist, the roles and responsibilities that this profession encompass, as well as to strengthen your understanding of the role that Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS) play in training and continuing professional development of biomedical scientists in the UK. The emphasis will be on reviewing professional standards and codes of practice as well as requirements for the HCPC registrations, including Registration Training Portfolio and Certificate of Competence.

Histology (Mandatory)

Histology is the science that studies the minute structure, composition and function of tissues. Every tissue is made of specialised cell components playing pivotal functions. When these functions are altered, the cell dysfunctions are reflected into significant histological changes, which are studied in the realm of histopathology. In this module, you will understand the different features and functions of the main classes of tissues, where cells exert specific functions.

Haematology and Blood Transfusion (Mandatory)

Haematology and blood transfusion science are core clinical study areas within Biomedical Science. This module will apply your knowledge of biochemistry, cell biology, genetics and immunology to the study of blood and the major proteins and cells that constitute blood. We will start by studying main types of blood cells and their distinguishing features, to then go on to consider most common diseases of the blood including anaemias, coagulation disorders and blood malignancies.

Pharmacology and Toxicology (Optional)

This module is intended to allow you to draw together a wide range of topics covered at levels 4 and 5 into the applied area of pharmacology and toxicology. This module utilises understanding and application of biochemistry, molecular biology, cell biology, genetics and physiology to solve problems. The interdisciplinary nature of the field provides an ideal opportunity for you to contextualise your studies within an important progressive science.

Clinical Nutrition (Optional)

The module will examine nutrition as it relates to the prevention and treatment of disease and deals with the nutritional aspects of diseases and clinical disorders by integrating students' existing knowledge of physiology, biochemistry and food science. In this module students will also consider the nutritional requirements of humans throughout the lifespan; the changing physiological status and subsequent changes in nutritional requirements will be studied along with a critical appraisal of how this is met with respect to diet, sociological status, geography and education.

Allison Brashear, MD, MBA, UB’s vice president for health sciences and dean of the Jacobs School, congratulates the Class of 2023.

Graduates also completed the following programs offered in alliance with the  Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center Graduate Division : cancer prevention and control, cancer sciences, cell and molecular biology and molecular pharmacology and cancer therapeutics.

Allison Brashear, MD, MBA , UB’s vice president for health sciences and dean of the Jacobs School, congratulated the graduates for their achievements.

“Despite hardships that all of us have faced the last few years, you have shown great resilience, determination and perseverance in your academic pursuits, qualities I am certain will enable you to make your mark in your respective industries,” Brashear said.

“You are the next generation of leaders, professionals, scientists and researchers,” Brashear added. “Your work will positively impact research aimed at ensuring equitable health outcomes across diverse patients and populations, while supporting the Jacobs School’s ongoing commitment to justice, equity, diversity and inclusion.”

Brashear emphasized the importance collaboration has had on their studies, and will continue to have in their careers.

“While your training may differ, at UB you learned that teamwork is essential, and that a diverse group working together can leverage its strengths and expertise to institute change,” Brashear said. “It is that type of collaboration that is fueling medical breakthroughs and the faster development of treatments and medications that impact patients’ lives.”

She spoke about how medical innovations — including artificial intelligence — will transform health care.

“This is only the beginning. The coming years will usher in a revolution in patient-centered care with the digitization of medical records, the development of biometric technology, and advancements in biology and life sciences,“ Brashear said. “While the industry is changing at a record speed, your UB degree has prepared you for a diverse job market and to remain versatile as scientists.”

“Your creative and critical thinking will continually push the bounds of scientific discovery and new technologies. It has been my honor to watch you grow and thrive, make new discoveries, and shape your goals to change the world,” Brashear added. “I applaud each and every one of you on achieving this next step in your journey and I wish you all the best in your bright futures.”

A. Scott Weber, PhD, provost and executive vice president for academic affairs, conferred the degrees during the May 21 event at UB’s Center for the Arts.

“Your UB education has prepared you to be flexible and responsive to the shifting needs and opportunities, and to meet the challenges we face head on, however vast they may seem,” Weber said.

“You’ve impacted our local and global communities through enhanced learning and engagement opportunities. Throughout your time at UB, you have proven that you are talented, compassionate, dedicated and strong. These truly are the attributes that will enable your future success,” Weber added.

biomedical science dissertation uk

Commencement speaker Arturo Casadevall, MD, PhD, tells the graduates they will play important roles in their research careers.

Infectious Disease Specialist is Speaker

Commencement speaker Arturo Casadevall, MD, PhD, distinguished professor and chair of molecular microbiology and immunology at Johns Hopkins University, told the graduates they will play an important role in shaping the world.

“I have a very simple message for you. You are humanity’s best insurance policy, and that makes you the most important scientific generation in the history of science,” Casadevall said. “This is no hyperbole, because you are graduating at a time of great challenges to our species.”

He went on to explain that when he got his degree, DNA sequencing was still a novelty, the life expectancy of someone with AIDS was a matter of months, the cause of cervical cancer was unknown, organ transplantation was rare and carried huge risks of organ rejection and infection, while ulcers were attributed to acid secretion and a type A personality.

Today, he said, DNA sequencing is commonplace, you can know your genetic ancestry for a few dollars, HIV is a treatable disease, there is a vaccine to prevent cervical cancer, organ transplantation is a routine procedure, and ulcers were found to be caused by bacteria and can now be treated with antibiotics.

“This progress was made possible because of new scientific knowledge. Basic science combined with clinical research to make discoveries that translated into new therapies,” Casadevall said. “To get here we needed new knowledge that in turn required approaching problems with the tools of science.”

The speaker also related that when he was 19, his father didn’t think he was going anywhere in life and insisted that Casadevall go to school to get a pest control operator license.

The classes were held at night in a community college in Brooklyn.

He still has that diploma proudly displayed in his office.

“Why am I telling you this? Because I want to make the point that life has many branch points and that the road to this podium was by no means straight or assured. In fact, I feel very lucky to have gotten as far as I have,” Casadevall said. “In medicine, I specialized in infectious disease and my research is in killing microbes. Hence, I am indeed in the business of killing bugs, and you could argue that I did take my father’s advice but just kept going.”

He offered hope to the graduates as they continue on in their research.

“I believe a day will come when one of you will give a commencement address, and you will tell the graduates that you remember a terrible time when many cancers were incurable, when many elderly individuals developed dementia, and when we feared that climate change was irreversible,” Casadevall said. “When that day comes, I hope you will reinforce the message that the way forward is to continue to generate knowledge to ensure an even better world built with the tools of science and ethics, on the wings of curiosity and the human spirit.”
