Our MSc by Research in Regenerative Medicine and Tissue Repair is a one-year, full-time, on-campus master's program.

The program is structured around:

  • two research projects; and
  • a research project proposal writing component

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 the repair of tissues damaged due to congenital conditions, trauma, or disease.

An optional pathway of study is the clinical development of Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products (ATMPs), which is offered to students who are interested in exploring a broader range of specialties and applications available in the regenerative medicine field beyond the bench.

Through this pathway, you will gain an understanding of the applied science, manufacturing, Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) and Quality Assurance, and ethics & regulatory frameworks and practices in ATMP delivery that are crucial for the advancement of these therapies to the clinic. You will then consolidate and apply your knowledge with a research project focused on real-life manufacturing scenarios.

Centre for Regenerative Medicine

The program is based at the Centre for Regenerative Medicine (CRM), a purpose-built research center with a track record of training over 200 postgraduate students.

The Centre is part of the University of Edinburgh’s Institute for Regeneration and Repair (IRR). Our scientists and clinicians study stem cells, disease, and tissue repair to advance human health.

By better understanding how stem cells are controlled and how diseases develop in a lab environment, we hope to find new ways to treat patients.
