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)....
