We have close links with the world's leading pharmaceutical and medical device companies and the clinical applications of our research impact many areas of medicine.

The subject

The subject of biomedical materials covers those materials that are used in the context of biology and medicine, usually to evaluate, treat, augment or replace any tissue, organ or function of the body. In surgery, a biomaterial may be a synthetic material used to replace part of a living system or to function in intimate contact with living tissue.

A new area in biomaterials involves the exploration of nanotechnology for drug delivery, biological sensing or tissue regeneration. Examples of these bionanomaterials are small particles that may be used for the delivery of drug molecules to target sites within the body or to detect diseased areas.

Biomaterials are produced using chemical, physical, mechanical processes and they often employ or mimic biological phenomena in order for them to interact with their biological surroundings in defined ways.

Application of research

The clinical applications of our research impact many areas of medicine, including drug delivery, cancer, wound healing, stem cell technology, repair and regeneration of nerve, tendon, cartilage, bone, intevertebral disc, skin, ligament and cornea.

Industry collaboration

We have strong ties with industry, including ongoing collaboration with Smith & Nephew, Johnson & Johnson, and Versamatrix A/S (Denmark), developing novel biomaterial based strategies for wound healing, bone repair, control of inflammation and drug delivery.

Facilities

To underpin the research and teaching activities, we have established state-of-the-art laboratories, which allow comprehensive characterisation and development of materials. These facilities range from synthetic/textile fibre chemistry to materials processing and materials testing.

To complement our teaching resources, there is a comprehensive range of electrochemical, electronoptical imaging and surface and bulk analytical facilities and techniques.

Developmental biology is aimed at understanding how a fertilised egg gives rise to a complex multicellular organism. The Developmental Biology MSc will give a thorough training in this subject area with opportunities to undertake research placements in the labs of leading researchers working on a range of model organisms and diverse areas of developmental biology. Some of the major areas of research undertaken at The University of Manchester are as follows:
-Studies of gene expression and cell signalling in model organisms, such as Drosophila, Xenopus, and mouse are illuminating the mechanisms by which different cell types and tissues arise during development. Findings obtained from these studies serve as general principles relating to human development.
-The ways in which misregulation of developmental mechanisms leads to human diseases, e.g. cancer, are being explored using various models.
-The mechanisms regulating stem cell maintenance and differentiation are being investigated, in order to harness the therapeutic potential of stem cells.
-The healing process is being studied to improve wound repair and in the longer term regeneration of organs.

This is a research focused master's course. We do not teach Developmental Biology using a traditional lecture-based format; instead we use an interactive approach where you learn through seminars, workshops, small group tutorials and during your research placements.
