The Masters of Research in Tissue Engineering for Regenerative Medicine (TERM) is a collaborative degree course that brings together interdisciplinary expertise from the Faculties of Medical and Human Sciences, Life Sciences, and Engineering and Physical Sciences.
This course provides: - postgraduate-level training to equip students from biological, engineering and/or medical-related backgrounds with the specialist knowledge and research skills to pursue a career in the field of tissue engineering/regenerative medicine; - a primary focus on strategies to repair, replace and ultimately regenerate various tissues and organs to solve major clinical problems; - a comprehensive insight into topical issues including stem cells, polymer technology, surface fabrication and gene delivery; - training for students to identify major clinical needs and formulate novel therapeutic solutions.
Tissue engineering/regenerative medicine as a discipline shows enormous potential for future health and, economically, there is a national demand for specific interdisciplinary training in this area.
The University of Manchester has a vast research network in this field comprising international experts from multiple disciplines, and so is extremely well-placed to deliver a truly unique masters course of exceptional quality.
This programme has both taught and research components and is suitable for those with little or no previous research experience.
Home students require an honours degree (minimum Upper Second) from a British university in an appropriate biological or medical subject, including biomedical materials, dentistry, veterinary medicine, pharmacology. Applicants with a Lower Second will only be considered if they hold a master’s or have comparable research experience (i.e. in industry). Overseas students are only accepted with an equivalent honours degree or similar in a biological or biomedical subject from an established university and should refer to entry requirements from your country for further information. For MBChB students, the minimum student criterion for admission is satisfactory achievement in Years 1 to 4.
