Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine is a rapidly emerging area of biomedical research with enormous therapeutic potential. As the academic research base broadens and industry begins to adopt the new technologies, the demand for skills in this area is increasing rapidly, resulting in excellent employment opportunities for graduates with training in this area.
The course offers specific practical training in areas of stem cell biology and integrative mammalian physiology. Students will undertake a research project in one of the laboratories, gaining practical experience and training in research methods in the area of Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine. The research project and associated literature review will also provide training in a range of transferable skills pertinent to future careers in academia or industry.
The course comprises four main elements:
core research project and literature review (90 credits)
core critical analysis and ethics and public awareness of science modules (30 credits)
choice of 2 lecture-based modules (30 credits)
choice of two laboratory practical-based modules (30 credits)
The literature review and research project would comprise half of the available marks and could be chosen from any of the projects offered from contributing departments including Biomedical Science, Engineering Materials or Computer Science.
