Description

The Stem Cells & Tissue Repair iBSc degree aims to provide you with a fundamental understanding and appreciation of the very latest research in this field. You will gain an advanced understanding of how tissues and organs form during development and regeneration, and the biology and application of stem cells essential for homoeostasis and repair of tissue. These key areas of study will prepare students for entry into the exciting new field of regenerative medicine and design of regenerative therapies.

The Stem Cells & Tissue Repair iBSc degree is a one-year study course that comprises modules totalling 120 credits. As part of your study pathway, you will undertake a supervised research project in one of the cutting edge research groups at King’s focusing on stem cell biology and tissue formation, the importance of the immune system for tissue regeneration, or design and application of biomaterials for stem cell therapies. There are approximately 15 places available for laboratory projects each year.
