Course content

This course will give you a deep understanding of one of the most significant and relevant areas of biomedical and translational research, including new therapeutic applications. You will develop scientific research skills in the field of tissue engineering that includes strategies to develop and evaluate biomaterials, cell-biomaterial interaction and imaging modalities.

The course is predominantly research-oriented and also includes journal club presentations and critical reviews with taught components providing comprehensive insights into stem cells, scaffolds for tissue engineering, cell material interaction and design strategies for future developments alongside exploration of state of the art research activities and techniques in the field.

Important for entrepreneurs, a unique module on innovation technology provides information on pathways to licensing and commercialisation of medical devices, covering regulatory requirements and processes, product design, IP and business/marketing requirements.

Students will undertake a laboratory-based research project, supervised by an academic member of staff, gaining insight into research methodologies and acquiring valuable laboratory experience. This research training and skills development will provide a firm foundation to pursue a PhD or a career in industry.

The key research project areas will include tissue engineering, biomaterials and stem cell approaches for tissue regeneration, new generation of metallo-pharmaceuticals, chemical biology, cell tracking and labelling methodologies and imaging.
