This research-led Master's course is designed to enable you to understand the biology behind, and applications of, a cutting edge area of the biosciences - regenerative medicine - using the skin as a main focus. 

Regenerative medicine aims to treat human disease by producing replacement cells, tissues or organs. It involves a group of new technologies based on the use of stem cells. This area is currently at an early stage but is developing rapidly due to the recent ability to manipulate specialised adult stem cells to revert to a more embryonic-like stage which can produce all cell types.

The skin is a particularly useful model as it contains very active stem cells and is a relatively accessible source of human cells. The unique human regenerative capacity of the hair follicle is particularly interesting. Follicles shed their hairs during frequent growth cycles regenerating new replacements; these may resemble previous ones or differ in size and/or colour (e.g. beard hairs replacing tiny facial hairs).

Learning about stem cells and skin function in health and disease will also give you understanding of areas already important to pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries.

Regenerative medicine aims to treat human disease by producing replacement cells, tissues or organs. It involves a group of novel technologies based on the use of stem cells. This exciting area is currently at an early stage, but it is developing rapidly due to the recent ability to manipulate specialised adult stem cells to revert to a more flexible, embryonic–like stage (induced pluripotent stem cells) which can produce all cell types (Nobel Prize, 2012).

Since regenerative medicine has the potential to become an area of major practical importance in clinical medicine, but is currently at a very early stage, postgraduates with advanced knowledge in this topic will be well- placed at the forefront of a new and rapidly expanding area.

Graduates from this unique Masters course, which is the only one providing expertise in both skin sciences and regenerative medicine, will have a particular advantage as their proficiency will cover these two important fields with major significance for both research and industrial employment.

The University is committed to helping students develop and enhance employability and this is an integral part of many programmes. Specialist support is available throughout the course from Career and Employability Services including help to find part-time work while studying, placements, vacation work and graduate vacancies. Students are encouraged to access this support at an early stage and to use the extensive resources on the Careers website.
