Introduction

Regenerative Medicine encompasses many areas of life science and medicine. This twenty-first century's medicine promises to address several unmet clinical needs and reduce healthcare costs.

Regenerative Medicine aims to repair damaged, diseased and worn out tissues or organs by using cells as therapies, delivered often in combination with bio-scaffolds, or using molecules that stimulate innate capacities of tissue repair. The production of these new medicines and devices requires an understanding of many aspects: basic research, in vitro analysis, preclinical testing, product conceptualization and development, regulatory and ethical frameworks and navigation of intellectual property issues....

Overview

This research-led Master's course is designed to enable you to understand the biology behind, and applications of, a cutting edge area of the biosciences - regenerative medicine - using the skin as the main focus.

Regenerative medicine aims to treat human disease by producing replacement cells, tissues or organs. It involves a group of new technologies based on the use of stem cells. This area is currently at an early stage but is developing rapidly due to the recent ability to manipulate specialised adult stem cells to revert to a more embryonic-like stage which can produce all cell types.

The skin is a particularly useful model as it contains very active stem cells and is a relatively accessible source of human cells. The unique human regenerative capacity of the hair follicle is particularly interesting. Follicles shed their hairs during frequent growth cycles regenerating new replacements; these may resemble previous ones or different in size and/or colour (e.g. beard hairs replacing tiny facial hairs)....

MSc Molecular Pathology of Cancer (Blended Learning)

Molecular Pathology (MP) is a rapidly growing discipline in 21st-century medicine. It integrates genomics and bioinformatics with modern pathology to underpin molecular diagnostics, theranostics and clinical trials delivery within the academic, health services and industry sectors in an era of precision medicine.

These exciting, innovative blended and distance learning programmes are aimed to enhance the participant’s theoretical knowledge and practical skills in MP and to empower them to pursue a career in academia, healthcare or industry. The programmes have a strong focus on innovation and entrepreneurship.

The programmes have been developed with a number of options in order to provide maximum flexibility of training. PgCert Molecular Pathology of Cancer candidates take the three modules delivered between September and January. PgDip candidates can take the Diploma in Molecular Pathology of Cancer and if successful can chose to progress to Masters level instead of graduating with the award. MSc candidates can take the Certificate/Diploma/MSc in Molecular Pathology of Cancer, which will provide a solid foundation for those wishing to study MP at Ph.D. level.

Programme description

In this programme you will:

Learn anatomy through dissection Gain knowledge and experience of anatomical teaching Take additional modules on neuroanatomy, embryology, anatomy law and ethics and medical imaging. Contribute to world-leading anatomical and/or biomedical research

Our programme aims to improve your theoretical and practical knowledge of human anatomy through an intensive on-campus dissection course, as well as the development and learning of theoretical and practical aspects of teaching anatomy at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

This programme has two main strands. One is the in-depth study of the anatomy of the human body. Anatomical knowledge will be learned to a level to teach undergraduate and postgraduate students and professions allied to medicine. This strand will involve the dissection of a body in groups of three to five students over two semesters. This part of the course is largely self-directed, with regular “surgeries” when teaching staff are present to answer questions and help students with the dissections.... [-]
