Stem cells falls within our vibrant Manchester Regenerative Medicine Network (MaRMN ) comprising academics and clinicians across the University and adjacent hospitals dedicated to carrying out world class research focussed on regeneration and repair of tissues, and developing new therapeutics. Stem cells biology is an important part of this research area. The MarMN is working to facilitate research in regenerative medicine and stem cell biology from bench to bedside
Those working in the area of tissue regeneration, combining tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, are developing living cell-based biological approaches to aid the repair and regeneration of damaged and diseased tissues.
This is a strongly interdisciplinary field of research that combines the skills of cell, molecular and matrix biologists with expertise in other areas including that from material, engineering and physical scientists at the University and with clinical and surgical specialists in the NHS.
MarMN scientists are investigating basic cellular mechanisms that regulate cell fate and devising therapeutic protocols to exploit cells for replacing injured or defective tissues (pre-clinical and clinical trials are underway). MarMN draws on major interdisciplinary strengths in stem and progenitor cell research together with gene therapy.
This Stem Cell Research course from The University of Manchester will enable you to gain a Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching and Learning, whilst also carrying out independent research on your chosen project.
Your postgraduate research degree will open up a range of career opportunities after you graduate.
