Course content

This Regenerative Medicine and Devices MRes provides the opportunity to develop scientific and translational research skills within an evolving discipline where major clinical conditions are treated by pioneering implants, tissue engineering constructs, cell- and gene-therapy, and nanomedicines.

The Centre for Regenerative Medicine and Devices research focuses on pathological and traumatic conditions of significant socio-economic impact. This informs the development of pioneering treatments for neurodegenerative diseases and sensory dysfunctions, diabetes, wound healing, cardiovascular and musculoskeletal diseases. You will work alongside internationally recognised academics, postdoctoral and other postgraduate researchers.

Guided by experienced supervisors students design and undertake a major research project. This demonstrates their creativity and initiative while applying scientific theory and developing practical skills relevant to research, industry and hospitals. Students test the translational potential of their project on placement with one of the organisations in the university's collaborative network or another relevant stakeholder, which is also an opportunity to build a network of contacts.

Course structure

The Regenerative Medicine and Devices MRes is typically completed full-time in one year, but can be taken part-time over two years. The course is structured to include a significant research component which is undertaken throughout the course. In addition, supporting taught modules further enrich learning.

Students deepen their understanding of the wider research community and literature through the university's specialist journal clubs with seminars from expert speakers as well as more informal, student-led presentations. And you will develop your practical, lab-based skills using our specialist facilities and equipment, supported by our technical team.
