Medical Biotechnology

Uniquely designed to include biotechnology and biomedical science knowledge and skills, this practice-oriented course provides a broad foundation in human, cell, molecular and microbial biology for greater flexibility in employment and further education. It trains you to work as a research or laboratory technologist in the biomedical sciences industry, such as research/tertiary institutions, hospitals, speciality centres, pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies. You can also look forward to becoming a medical laboratory technologist to meet the growing demand for paramedical support in hospitals, central testing laboratories and private diagnostic laboratories. In your final year of study, you can opt for one of our four industry-relevant Elective Clusters: BioInformatics, Clinical Laboratory Practice, Functional Plant Technology and Translational Medical Research.

Our Student Projects

Characterizing the Functional Capacity of Human Vδ2+ T Cells in Young and Old by Viyshnatulasiy D/O G M

Viyshnatulasiy’s project deals with age-related changes to the immune system and aims to characterize the functional capacity of the two subsets of T-cells.

Viyshnatulasiy is a recipient of Lee Kuan Yew Award which is awarded to the top technology or computer science graduates in each of the polytechnics.

Ocean Acidification Matters: The Effect of Low pH on the Reproductive Success and Larval Development of Giant Clam, Tridacna Crocea by Chew Ming En Lucas

Atmospheric carbon dioxide emissions are dissolved in the ocean to form carbonic acid which impedes marine biogenic calcification, but also actively dissolves the shells and exoskeletons of marine calcifiers. Lucas studied the effect of carbonic acid on gamete production, fertilization and larval development.

Lucas is the recipient of CapitaLand Award for All-Round Excellence which is awarded to graduates who excel in their studies and has outstanding co-curricular activities contributions in community service.

Evaluation on the Effects of Dictamni Cortex and Radix Arnebiae on Sensitized Reconstructed Human Epidermis and Analysis by RT-qPCR by Neo Jun Jia

Allergic contact dermatitis (ACD) is a type IV delayed hypersensitivity reaction that occurs two to three days after contact with allergens. Our student worked to establish a suitable in vitro model to study the ACD.

This project was judged to be one of the best among over 70 major projects in the graduating cohort.
