Course content

The MRes in Tissue Engineering for Regenerative Medicine (TERM) is a collaborative degree programme that brings together interdisciplinary expertise from the Schools of Biomedicine, Translational Medicine, Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, the Faculty of Life Sciences and School of Materials. This programme provides:
Postgraduate-level training to equip students from biological, engineering and/or medical-related backgrounds with the specialist knowledge and research skills to pursue a career in the field of tissue engineering/regenerative medicine
A primary focus on strategies to repair, replace and ultimately regenerate various tissues and organs to solve major clinical problems
A comprehensive insight into topical issues including stem cells, polymer technology, surface fabrication and gene delivery
Training for students to identify major clinical needs and formulate novel therapeutic solutions
Tissue engineering for regenerative medicine as a discipline shows enormous potential economically, and there is a national demand for specific interdisciplinary training in this area. The University of Manchester has a vast research network in this field, comprising international experts from multiple disciplines and so is extremely well-placed to deliver a truly unique MRes course of exceptional quality.

Students benefit from a close interaction with members of the:

UK Centre for Tissue Engineering (UKCTE)
UK Centre for Tissue Regeneration
North West Embryonic Stem Cell Centre
