Course Summary

This course will enable you to develop a comprehensive understanding of Stem cell biology and regenerative medicine. This course aims to provide you with a high level of scientific knowledge and understanding of stem cell biology and regenerative medicine - from the molecular to the whole system level. The course aims to enable you to develop an informed and critical appreciation of recent scientific developments in these areas of modern biomedical sciences and its clinical and industrial application, as well as a practical skill set for further research and learning, e.g. PhD studies. You will encounter a variety of teaching and learning methods, including: Lectures; Practical classes; Tutorials; Seminars. Assessment will vary depending upon the module and will include both examinations and continuous assessment through coursework.

In addition to the particular knowledge and skills that you will gain on these courses, you will also develop transferable skills such as: Presenting; Team working; Report writing; Critical analysis; Negotiating; IT. Graduates from this course are prepared for a research-focussed role in industry, including the developing clinical field of stem cell therapies of regenerative medicine, or academia. You can therefore expect to apply for roles in further research, in the form of a PhD or research assistant, or undertake a career in the commercial or clinical sector.
