The utilization of stem cells in the clinical arena is one of the most exciting areas of medicine today. The MSc in Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine is designed to enable you to develop an up-to-date, advanced understanding of this exciting area of medicine and clinical research. Regenerative medicine has the potential to impact on conditions as varied as spinal injury, coronary heart disease and type 1 diabetes.
Why study with us?
All of our courses involve using current and past research extensively. The Masters programme is delivered by a research-active group of academic staff, supplemented by a variety of Clinicians and Biomedical Scientists from local Hospital Departments. You will receive training in the skills required in the reading and interpretation of the literature and translating that into evidence based practice. We will develop your research and writing skills so that you will be in a position to contribute to the scientific literature in an effective manner.
The programme culminates in the Research Dissertation, which will be assessed through your production of two publishable scientific articles. Our aim will be to develop these to publication with you if suitable.
If biomedical or clinical research is your interest, successful completion of the MSc will allow you to directly register onto PhD or and join our team of researchers at the Institute of Medicine.
What will I learn?
The MSc in Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine is designed to provide an in-depth, current look at stem cell technology, its regulation and its application in medicine. We will look at stem cell theory and then apply this to clinical problems. The regulatory framework will be examined and ethical issues discussed. You will develop critical analytical skills so that you will be able to evaluate new developments in research into regenerative medicine. Taught modules include: Evidence Based Medicine Stem Cell Theory and Practice Molecular Medicine Case Studies in Molecular Medicine Tissue Formation and Regeneration
You will also carry out a research project in an appropriate area within a research group at the forefront of the field.
Seminars and tutorials will be held with various healthcare professionals and clinical researchers.
The learning experience
Our programme consists of six taught modules and a Research Dissertation.
We deliver taught modules as three-day intensive courses to facilitate attendance from students in employment. Weekly support sessions and journal club supplement learning – all held in our new modern facilities in Bache Hall on the Countess of Chester Hospital Campus.
You will be assessed via coursework assignments, which may focus on clinical reviews, laboratory reports, posters, oral presentations, or data manipulation exercises.
Applicants must hold an appropriate undergraduate degree with a minimum of 2:2 honours (e.g. in Medicine, Biomedical Science, Dietetics, Human Biology) or hold appropriate professional qualifications and be able to demonstrate suitable background knowledge and skills.Applications are invited from: junior doctors; NHS staff; international students with appropriate qualifications; international doctors or healthcare professionals; those with related undergraduate degrees (e.g. Biomedical Science, Dietetics) or equivalent professional qualifications and background experience.
