Months of entry
This programme is designed to enable students to develop an up-to-date, advanced understanding of this exciting area of medicine and clinical research. Regenerative medicine has the potential to impact on conditions as varied as spinal injury, coronary heart disease and type 1 diabetes. Students will look at stem cell theory and then apply this to clinical problems. Students will also develop critical analytical skills in order to be able to evaluate new developments in research into regenerative medicine.
The programme is modular and has six taught modules plus a Research Dissertation.
Evidence Based Medicine
This module provides training in the essential skills needed as a researcher or practitioner to use the scientific and medical literature.
Analysis and Interpretation of Clinical Data
Through a series of practical sessions, this module will develop your understanding of the theories underpinning modern analytical and molecular procedures, and develop your critical appreciation of the uses and limitations of a range of analytical and molecular techniques relevant to clinical and biomedical science.
This module aims to develop your expertise in molecular approaches applicable to a variety of disease types.
Case Investigations in Molecular Medicine
This module will cover the analysis of cases from different medical specialism.
Stem Cell Theory and Practice
This module will develop your understanding of the general concepts of stem cell biology and the potential of stem cell research and regenerative medicine to clinical conditions.
Tissue Formation and Regeneration
This module will discuss the current and potential uses of the stem cells in regenerative medicine and the alternative strategies.
This module is your opportunity to:
- investigate systematically and in depth a laboratory-based topic of direct relevance to the programme of study and your personal interests
- draw on and contribute to the development of the growing body of knowledge in the broad clinical/biomedical sciences field
- present the outcomes of personal research in the form of two publishable scientific articles.
