Course content

This programme aims to provide a high level of scientific knowledge and understanding of stem cell biology and regenerative medicine - from the molecular to the whole system level.

Course Outline & Modules

This programme aims to provide a high level of scientific knowledge and understanding of stem cell biology and regenerative medicine - from the molecular to the whole system level. The programme aims to enable students to develop an informed and critical appreciation of recent scientific developments in these areas of modern biomedical sciences and its clinical and industrial application, as well as a practical skill set for further research and learning, e.g. PhD studies.

The opportunity to undertake a work experience placement will enable students to further their employability and transferable skills and develop links with participating clinical and industrial partners.

This course offers a flexible framework of core and optional modules. The core modules are:
-Advanced Laboratory Skills with data analysis and interpretation
-Understanding Professional Practice & Enhancing your Employability
-Mammalian Cell Biology and Culture
-Stem Cells and Tissue Engineering Technology
-Tissue Formation, Function and Repair
-Models of Regeneration I

Optional modules include, but are not limited to:
-Ageing and Regenerative Medicine
-Transplantation Biology
-Finance and Business Management

Note that not all options may be available in any one year and that options will not proceed if the minimum student intake number is not reached.

Learning, Teaching & Assessment

The programme is delivered using a combination of lectures, practical classes, tutorials and seminars. Some modules will include group work. The core employability module will use visiting lecturers from industry to illustrate the potential employment avenues for graduates of this course. The course includes a research project, this is likely to be a laboratory-based project where students will collect and analyse their own data. Assessment methods employed include examinations and continuous assessment through coursework; these will differ for individual modules.

Career Opportunities

Completion of this course prepares students for a research-focussed role in industry, including the developing clinical field of stem cell therapies of regenerative medicine, or academia. Graduates can therefore expect to enter further research, in the form of a PhD or research assistant, or may undertake a career in the commercial or clinical sector.
