Course content

Located within a European Centre of Excellence for Tissue engineering, at Keele University’s local hospital campus: the Guy Hilton Research Centre, this course provides support and development to enhance your career within the rapidly expanding field of stem cells, regenerative medicine, cancer, material science, bio/tissue engineering and associated novel technologies.

This is a multidisciplinary course that prepares you with a wide range of skills and knowledge for an exciting career in translational medicine, be it in academia, industry or for clinical research, in addition to giving you a foundation in the areas of cell biology, human anatomy and physiology and molecular techniques.

The research centre is also an EPSRC Doctoral Training Centre for Regenerative Medicine, an Arthritis UK Centre and a UK Regenerative Medicine Platform Research Hub. This multidisciplinary environment enables close interaction with leading academics and clinicians involved in cutting-edge, and clinically transformative research.

The course provides support from the basics of human anatomy and physiology, through to development of novel nanotechnologies for healthcare. Due to the teaching and research involvement of clinical academic staff within the department, there are exciting opportunities to be exposed to current clinical challenges and state-of-the-art developments. Clinical visits and specialist seminars are offered and students will be able to select dissertation projects that span fundamental research to clinical translation of technologies – a truly ‘bench to bedside’ approach.

The aim of the course is to provide multidisciplinary Masters level postgraduate training in Cell and Tissue Engineering to prepare students for future employment in healthcare, industrial and academic environments. This involves building on existing undergraduate knowledge in basic science or engineering and applying it to core principles and current issues in medicine and healthcare.
