Course Summary

The Regenerative Medicine is a multidisciplinary area of study covering stem cell biology, tissue engineering, bioengineering, chemical biology and gene therapy. This is a dynamic and growing area of research with the potential to advance diagnosis and treatment of disease, and improve the way patients are treated. A leading international centre for research into the fundamental principles of human physiology. We have recognised expertise in all aspects of modern physiology ranging from the regulation of gene expression to cell, tissue and whole organism biology.

This area of physiology research, utilizes state-of-art technologies that enable non-invasive assessment of anatomy and function (MRI), protein expression and reporter gene expression (optical imaging), measurement of blood flow and vascularity (ultrasound) and renal function (photo-acoustic imaging). All have widespread applications for diagnostics and therapeutic interventions in neurology, neurosurgery, oncology, physiology, musculoskeletal biology and other relevant fields.

Research is undertaken within the Department of Cellular and Molecular Physiology, an integral part of the Institute for Translational Medicine. This interdisciplinary research area is dedicated to harnessing the curative potential of stem cells to improve human health, with the central aim to bring life changing stem cell therapies closer to reality. Research is undertaken within the Department of Cellular and Molecular Physiology, an integral part of the Institute for Translational Medicine. Research spans from stem cell biology to tissue engineering to chemical biology with a focus on translational research. There are strong links to The Centre for Preclinical Imaging also within the Department of Cellular and Molecular Physiology, which provides expertise and infrastructure for non-invasive imaging in pre-clinical models. Linked to the UK Regenerative Medicine Platform. The UKRMP Safety and Efficacy Hub, led from Liverpool, is developing novel strategies for evaluating the safety and efficacy of regenerative medicine therapies, so that these important new medicines can be developed with full confidence.

The Doctor of Medicine (MD) is a doctoral degree open to medical practitioners (technically, anyone holding a medical qualification registrable with the General Medical Council). It is equivalent in requirements and format to the PhD.

Entry requirements

Applicants for postgraduate research study at Liverpool are normally expected to hold a UK first degree with a First Class or Upper Second Class degree classification, or a Second Class degree plus a Master’s degree. Equivalent international qualifications are also accepted, and their equivalence will be evaluated on the basis of the information provided by the National Academic Recognition and Information Centre (NARIC) as well as internal guidance based on our experience of a qualification’s suitability as a preparation for our programmes.
