The taught component of the course includes subject-specific content in the area of stem cells and regenerative medicine. You have the flexibility to develop your own bespoke course by selecting additional, complementary modules. You will also participate in training in general research principles, and other professional and key skills.
The subject-based modules focus on interdisciplinary research that seeks to convert stem cell research and technologies into cost-effective, ethically robust 21st century health solutions that will ameliorate degenerative diseases, the effects of ageing and serious injury. This strand is delivered jointly with Durham University, with project opportunities in both universities.
Your research project comprises the major element of the course. This project will involve 24 weeks of research in an area of stem cells and regenerative medicine under the supervision of an expert academic researcher in the field.
The course allows you to experience an internationally competitive research area, predominantly in academia but also potentially in industry.
This programme accepts both medical and dental students wishing to take a master’s degree as an intercalation. You will need to have successfully completed your third or fourth year of study.
