  • Objectives
    To train scientists to be able to design, perform and analyse studies that will elucidate the role of stem cell and regenerative medicine and integrated mammalian physiology in human disease. To illustrate the principles of contemporary research using examples of good scientific practice from a variety of biomedical disciplines. To demonstrate the principles, advantages and limitations of key research tools in biomedical science. To foster a commitment to continuing professional development. To prepare scientists for further postgraduate work and/or a professional career in stem cell and regenerative medicine and integrated mammalian physiology and related areas
  • Entry requirements
    Entry requirements Candidates will normally have a first class Honours degree in a relevant biomedical subject.
  • Academic title
    MSc Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine
  • Course description
    Course content

    The course offers specific practical training in areas of stem cell biology and integrative mammalian physiology. Students will undertake a research project in one of the laboratories, gaining practical experience and training in research methods in the area of Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine. The research project and associated literature review will also provide training in a range of transferable skills pertinent to future careers in academia or industry.

    Course Structure

    The course comprises four main elements:

    -core research project and literature review (90 credits)
    -core critical analysis and ethics and public awareness of science modules (30 credits)
    -choice of 2 lecture-based modules (30 credits)
    -choice of two laboratory practical-based modules (30 credits)

    The literature review and research project would comprise half of the available marks and could be chosen from any of the projects offered from contributing departments including Biomedical Science, Engineering Materials or Computer Science.
