The Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine MSc program offered by University of Southern California invites you to chart the course for the medicine of the future — regenerative medicine. This is one of the first master’s programs in stem cell biology and regenerative medicine in the United States.


What you will study

The one-year program at University of Southern California with an optional second research year offers courses in cutting-edge biomedical science, including developmental biology, human embryology, regenerative medicine, and the translational and therapeutic aspects of stem cell technology. The Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine MSc program at University of Southern California also provides extensive hands-on laboratory experience with stem cells.

After completing this program, you will be poised to apply to medical or PhD programs, enter the growing stem cell pharmaceutical domain, or engage in other academic, clinical or business efforts. You will possess a unique understanding of how the body’s own developmental and repair mechanisms can restore damaged cells, tissues and organs — providing new opportunities to treat conditions ranging from blindness to cancer, from organ failure to HIV/AIDS.
