Course content

Our Centre for Doctoral Training in Tissue Engineering Engineering and Regenerative Medicine, Innovation in Medical and Biological Engineering will provide postgraduate research and training for 50 students, to research, develop and deliver regenerative therapies and devices, which can repair or replace diseased tissues and restore normal tissue function.

By using novel scaffolds in conjunction with the patient's own (autologous) cells, effective acellular regenerative therapies for tissue repair can be developed at a lower cost, reduced time and reduced risk, compared to alternative and more complex cell therapy approaches.
This is an exciting opportunity to undertake a 4 year funded integrated PhD and MSc in Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine.

Application deadline: Open until filled

Fees and funding

A full standard studentship consists of academic fees (£4,100 in Session 2015/16), together with a maintenance grant (£13,726 in Session 2014/15) paid at standard Research Council rates and a Research Training Support Grant.

Generally, UK students will be eligible for a full award and other European Union applicants will be eligible for an award paying academic fees and RTSG only, except in cases where residency in the UK has been established for more than 3 years prior to the start of the programme of study.

Places are available for students who have their own funding.
