Student Profile(s)

Luke Flatt

Being part of the MSc Stem Cell Technology course has given me the opportunity to be involved in practical experiments of the highest calibre. And I’ve thoroughly enjoyed them. For each of the five taught modules there has been the opportunity to undertake practical based studies. The two experimental sessions which stand out for me were in the Embryonic Stem Cells and Adult Stem Cells modules. Each offered the chance to experiment with new and exciting techniques, which I had not previously used. The Embryonic Stem Cell practical allowed me to develop the techniques to culture human embryonic stem cells and also differentiate these cells towards the cardiac lineage – seeing beating clusters of cells the students had made was amazing!

In the second semester the Adult Stem Cell practical focused on several other specialist techniques relating to stem cell culture. The first task isolated brain and bone marrow derived adult stem cell populations, while the second task was to culture and differentiate adult neural and mesenchymal stem cells towards mature cell lineages. I found parts of the practicals difficult but very rewarding in terms of personal development. The sessions have allowed me to develop the skills I needed to tackle my summer project, which will be to investigate epigenetic stablity in human embryonic stem cells.

I have also secured a PhD working with human pluripotent stem cells. I couldn’t have done this before I took the MSc, so there’s no question the practicals have greatly benefitted me.

The excellent structure of the programme allows for a robust education within the field of regenerative medicine. The course delves into the the pillars of stem cell biology while also allowing us to build an excellent set of both academic and practical skills. The exceptional facilities and tutoring provided as well as the broad range of topics and skills taught make this course a thoroughly enjoyable and rewarding experience."
