The MRes in Tissue Engineering for Regenerative Medicine (TERM) is a collaborative degree programme that brings together expertise from the School of Medicine, School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, Faculty of Life Sciences and School of Material Sciences.
This programme provides:
-postgraduate-level training to equip students from biological and/or medical-related backgrounds with the specialist knowledge and research skills to pursue a career in the field of tissue engineering/regenerative medicine
-a primary focus on strategies to repair, replace and ultimately regenerate various tissues and organs to solve major clinical problems
-a comprehensive insight into topical issues including stem cells, polymer technology, surface fabrication and gene delivery
-training to students to identify major clinical needs and formulate novel therapeutic solutions
Tissue engineering for regenerative medicine in Manchester
Tissue engineering for regenerative medicine as a discipline shows enormous potential economically and there is a national demand for specific interdisciplinary training in this area. The University of Manchester has a vast research network in this field comprising international experts from multiple disciplines and so is extremely well-placed to deliver a truly unique MRes course of exceptional quality.
After the course, many students will continue their studies and register for a PhD. However, the programme is also of value to students wishing to progress in the pharmaceutical industry, biotechnology companies or specialist clinical training. The MRes is also ideal for MBChB intercalating students who wish to undertake directly channelled research training in the tissue engineering/regenerative medicine fiel
