Why this programme
- The UK and further afield hosts a rapidly growing regenerative medicine sector with major centres focused on production of cellular and acellular therapies and a growth of clinical trialling. Therefore, there is increasing demand for recruits with highly specialised regenerative medicine experience.
- Accredited by the Royal Society of Biology for the purpose of meeting, in part, the academic and experience requirement for the Membership and Chartered Biologist (CBiol).
- The Stem Cell Engineering for Regenerative Medicine programme of the University of Glasgow is run by our team within our centre for excellence, the Centre for the Cellular Microenvironment, specialising in stem cell science and their potential within regenerative medicine.
- Research project training will be delivered under the supervision of world-leading researchers, including Professors Mathew Dalby and Manuel Salmeron-Sanchez and Drs Catherine Berry, Mathis Riehle and Cristina Gonzalez, under the Centre for the Cellular Microenvironment.
- Receive expert teaching, from academics across both Life Sciences and Bioengineering disciplines, providing understanding on the concepts of stem cells and the translation aims, biophysics, scaffolds and tissues, ‘omic approaches to data handling, bioimaging and bioinformatics.
- Learn lab skills, including cell culture and molecular biology, to allow you to complete a final semester research project.
- Further focus will be on your ability to bioengineer 3D microenvironments to enable stem cell growth and differentiation, creating 3D models for Pharma and toxicology testing.
- Work on an interdisciplinary project in your final semester, which will lie at the interface between bioengineering and life sciences.
- Laboratory based projects will be carried out mainly within our new Research Hub at the University of Glasgow.
- Learn to incorporate, microscopy, materials processing and cell culture under one roof.
Following completion, graduates will be equipped with the skills to progress with a career in stem cell engineering and regenerative medicine directly, through a variety of means such as:
- Regulation (e.g. MHRA, SNBTS, CGTC),
- Industry (e.g. regenerative medicine, pharma, toxicology),
- Academia ,
