The Regenerative Medicine and Tissue Repair programme at The University of Edinburgh is structured around:
- two laboratory-based research projects; and
- a research project proposal writing component
Who is this programme for?
This masters programme prepares you for a career in academia or industry, whether you have recently completed an undergraduate degree or are a professional wanting to pursue a career in research.
The programme delivers cross-disciplinary training in a vibrant research environment to train skilled researchers uniquely equipped to capitalise on regenerative medicines potential to advance human health.
The aim of the programme is to train the next generation of experts in regenerative medicine and tissue repair. Successful advancement of tissue regeneration and repair relies on combining fundamental and translational research expertise in areas of:
- regenerative medicine
- developmental biology
- stem cell biology
- inflammation research
Such a cross-disciplinary approach will underpin the development of novel cell and drug-based therapies to stimulate repair of tissues damaged due to congenital conditions, trauma or disease.
As a graduate of our programme, you will be well-placed to successfully pursue a PhD in biomedicine or take on challenging professional roles in academia or health care industries.
You will gain valuable transferable skills that will be beneficial in a wide range of professions.
You will undertake two 20-week research projects in:
- Laboratories of the Centre for Regenerative Medicine (CRM)
- Laboratories of other centres at the Institute for Regeneration and Repair (IRR)
- Laboratories, GMP facilities or research offices of collaborating centres or organisations
The research projects are core components of the programme.
- Choose your projects from a list submitted by group leaders and professional experts, based around their current research and projects. Each research project bears 80 credits towards the programme total of 180 credits.
- Disseminate your findings at group meetings, a poster day and a retreat.
- Write up your project results as a dissertation (10,000 words), to be submitted for formal assessment towards your MSc by Research degree.
The projects will also provide you with:
- good research practice
- scientific writing
- analytical skills
- 12 months
