Stem cells and repairing the damaged brain

Course Description

Regenerative neurology, catalysed by stem cell based discovery and therapeutic opportunities, is one of the great emerging medical disciplines. The University of Edinburgh is a world-leader in this field.

We are looking to launch an online Masters programme in "Stem Cells and Repairing the Damaged Brain", aimed at students from either clinical or scientific backgrounds who are keen to acquire in depth knowledge of these key areas of cutting edge translational neuroscience focused on neurodegenerative diseases, stem cells and regeneration. In addition to drawing upon our world-leading Edinburgh faculty in both the laboratory and clinical science of regenerative neurology, we will draw upon our unique integrated care-research Anne Rowling Regenerative Neurology Clinic to present the whole translational concept of bench-to-bedside via scientists, clinicians, patients and NHS staff.

The programme will provide the opportunity for students to focus on understanding neuroanatomy and neurodevelopment and how neurodegenerative diseases impact the central nervous system and its clinical consequences. A novel aspect of our course would be interfacing and learning from real-life clinical settings. Furthermore, the role of cellular and animal models and how stem cells bridge these experimental systems will run throughout this programme.

Flexible study options will be offered, with a Postgraduate Certificate gained after 1-2 years, a Postgraduate Diploma after 2-4 years and a Master of Science (MSc) after 3-6 years. The likely cost of the Certificate will be £4,350, the Diploma £8,700 and the MSc £13,000.
