Course Content

Course content

Regenerative Medicine harnesses the intrinsic developmental programs by which the tissues and organs of the body are laid down, as well as the natural repair and regenerative capacity of the body, to provide solutions to the problems of degenerative diseases.

These solutions may concern direct tissue replacement, indirect mechanisms to ameliorate disease or enhance intrinsic tissue repair, or the development of pharmaceutical therapies. As such, it is of increasing interest to Life Sciences industries that seek to provide products and processes to the healthcare sector, and to healthcare providers such as the NHS.

This programme is intended to meet current and future needs of the pharmaceutical industry and health care providers by providing a cadre of well-trained scientists capable of fulfilling managerial, administrative, research and technical roles within the developing commercial regenerative medicine sector.

Our programme covers key theoretical and practical aspects of the growth and maintenance of pluripotent stem cell lines, the directed differentiation of these cells into defined tissue phenotypes, and the maintenance of the differentiated state under conditions suitable for drug testing/screening programs.

Essential elements of good practice will also be included, such as quality assurance and the regulatory framework that surrounds the derivation, storage and use of human cells. The course has a strong element fostering entrepreneurship and innovation.

Our teaching is multidisciplinary, with contributions from the fields of medicine, biology, chemistry and bioinformatics.

Programme structure

The programme contains both taught and independent project components.

Compulsory courses

  • Fundamental Biology of Stem Cells
  • Basic Techniques in Regenerative Medicine
  • Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine
  • Production of Differentiated Cells
  • Regenerative Medicine Regenerative Medicine and Industry

Industrial placement

The laboratory placement is a key component of the course where students gain real world experience of regenerative medicine. The placements may be in an industrial or academic environment depending on the aspirations and career interests of the student. In some cases the placements may not involve hands-on laboratory research but may include aspects of the regulation of regenerative therapies or development of new businesses.

Financial assistance may be available to cover travel expenses to the location of the industrial placement.

Career opportunities

Graduates will be equipped for a variety of roles within the developing commercial regenerative medicine sector.
