Regenerative Medicine MSc
Queen Mary University of London
Key Course Facts
Regenerative medicine is an interdisciplinary field, which aims to repair diseased or damaged tissues using biological or cell-based technologies. It is a rapidly growing area of biomedical research that encompasses stem cell biology, tissue engineering, drug delivery, and nanotechnology. This MSc course provides advanced, multi-disciplinary training in the scientific principles and clinical applications of regenerative medicine, and is delivered jointly by Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry and the School of Engineering and Materials Science.
Taught modules will develop a strong scientific foundation in the biology of stem cells and regeneration and the fundamental principles of biomaterials, tissue engineering and cellular reprogramming. Through an intensive 12-week research project, students will then gain hands on experience applying these concepts to problems in human health and the development of novel regenerative technologies.
Upon completion of the MSc in Regenerative Medicine, students will be well placed for further training at the PhD level or professional careers in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries.

As a multi-disciplinary course, the MSc is appropriate for a wide range of students. Graduates with degrees in biological sciences or medicine will gain an in-depth understanding of the cellular and molecular aspects of regenerative medicine as well as an introduction to the interdisciplinary fields of biomaterials and tissue engineering. Similarly, students with a physical sciences background will have the opportunity to broaden their experiences and acquire new skills in the biological sciences.
Admission to the course is selective, and based upon academic credentials, research experience, and motivation. At a minimum, students must have an undergraduate degree equivalent to UK second-class honours from a recognised academic institution. Applicants are required to submit a statement of purpose and letter of recommendation with their application. Applications are accepted all year round, but there are limited places to ensure high-quality training, so please apply early to avoid disappointment.
Intercalating medical students
The MSc Regenerative Medicine also accepts applications from intercalating medical students who have successfully completed at least three years of the MBBS, MbChB or equivalent medical course. Entrance is competitive. Please find full details on the following website.
