BBMRI.mt is active in the new Bachelor of Science Honours in Medical Sciences. This is an optional ‘intercalated’ year offered to the existing degree programme of Doctor of Medicine offered by the Faculty of Medicine and Surgery at the University of Malta. The intercalated degree is intended to offer innovative opportunities to Medical Students who wish to enhance their academic knowledge of human health and disease mechanisms. It also helps them to develop research skills with the long-term intention of pursuing careers as “physician scientists” involved at the cutting edge of developing personalised medicine. It permits medical students to exit and join postgraduate programmes offered by the Faculty of Medicine and Surgery or other Faculties or to re-enter the MD course at a later time. This academic year three from four students are conducting biobanking-led research in: Immunogenetics, Haemoglobin disorders and Wound healing and inflammation research.
