Course content

Our degrees in Genes, Drugs and Stem Cells provide state-of-the-art education in next-generation therapies, training you in translational research and rapidly-developing topics in advanced therapeutic medicines.

You will acquire transferable and research skills and knowledge of ethical and regulatory legislation, commercialisation strategies and intellectual property and patent protection.

The course is a unique combination of 'hot' and rapidly-developing topics in advanced therapeutic medicines, and will provide academic and laboratory research training in three key areas (streams):

  • Gene and Nucleic Acid Based Therapies
  • New Horizons in Pharmacology
  • Regenerative Medicine

A major focus is training in translational research illustrating all steps required to progress novel therapies from bench-to-bedside and towards drug licensing.

It is the provision of teaching in all three areas of advanced therapeutic development which makes our programme unique.
