Introduction

With an ageing population and chronic diseases on the rise, there is a need for more effective medical treatments and therefore a need for trained tissue engineering researchers to deliver these technologies.

Tissue engineering and regenerative medicine is an ever-emerging interdisciplinary field of biomedical research; which combines life sciences, biology and engineering, to progress the repair, replacement and enhancement of diseased and damaged tissues.

It’s a field that has the potential to deliver treatments for diseases, injuries and disorders where currently people have no options.

The Programme provides in-depth training in this branch of biomedical science, including stem cell biology, biomaterials and tissue/organ engineering. The MSc offers a balanced combination of theory and practice; and can serve either as preparation for a PhD or as a self-contained master’s qualification.

The programme is both lecture and laboratory-based; benefiting from taught modules that cover areas such as Cellular & Molecular Biology and Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine and culminating in a hands-on 5-month research project. It also includes several opportunities to visit relevant clinical settings and local industrial partners.

Students are taught by academics from across the School of Biosciences, Dentistry, Medicine, Optometry and Pharmacy. You will therefore study within a multidisciplinary community with internationally excellent academic, research and clinical expertise not available at many other institutions.

Based at The University Hospital of Wales (the 3rd largest university hospital in the UK), you will develop technical laboratory skills and will be presented with a number of opportunities to extend your communication and presentation skills, both written and oral.

You will acquire a number of specific skills, such as the ability to collect, analyse and interpret a range of complex quantitative and qualitative data. You will also develop a number of valuable laboratory research-based skills, through the completion of a 5-month research project of your choice*, which will be presented as a poster.

Graduates from this Programme will have a broad spectrum of knowledge and a variety of skills, making them highly attractive both to potential employers and research establishments in this fast-developing sector.

Why Study this Course

The Programme provides in-depth training in this branch of biomedical science, including stem cell biology, biomaterials and tissue/organ engineering.

First of Its Kind in the UK

Our course was the first of its kind in the UK, building on Cardiff University’s research excellence and critical mass of tissue engineering researchers.

Our Interdisciplinary Network

Teaching is delivered by academics across the University.

Visit Clinical Settings

Opportunities to visit clinical settings and local industrial partners to speak with clinicians with keen interests in tissue engineering and repair.

Research Project

The MSc combines both taught modules and a 5-month research project which can be chosen by you. Previous student projects have been in research areas such as stem cell biology, bone, skin, oral tissues and drug delivery.
