Course content

The Tissue Regeneration and Stem Cells research group covers two distinct, but overlapping areas. Those working in the area of tissue regeneration, combining tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, are developing living cell-based biological approaches to aid the repair and regeneration of damaged and diseased tissues. This is a strongly interdisciplinary field of research, which combines the skills of cell, molecular and matrix biologists in the Faculty of Life Sciences with expertise in other Faculties including material, engineering and physical scientists and clinical and surgical specialists.

Information for international students

For applicants whose first language is not English an IELTS score of 6.5, TOEFL 577 (paper based), TOEFL 233 (computer based) or TOEFL 90 (internet based) is required as a minimum.
