MSc Stem Cells and Regeneration

Advancing careers at the forefront of regenerative medicine

Stem cells can help us understand and potentially cure many devastating conditions and diseases. This online distance-learning programme is designed for scientists and prospective researchers as well as qualified doctors, dentists and veterinarians to advance their careers in this exciting field.

This distance-learning programme is taught through lectures, online discussions and assessments delivered over the internet by internationally recognised experts at the University of Bristol.

The programme covers stem cell biology and regeneration from its origins to its current and potential applications in treating human diseases, such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and cardiovascular diseases.

Our leading researchers will also introduce you to the latest technologies for research in this area.

What our students say

I would definitely recommend doing the MSc. The course gave me a thorough understanding of regenerative medicine and the latest developments in a rapidly moving field. It certainly helped me identify the area of research I wanted to pursue in the future.

Stephanie Wallis, MSc Stem Cells and Regeneration

I decided to do a Master's on a part-time, distance-learning basis as I wanted to keep working.

Sheila Pinion, MSc Stem Cells and Regeneration

I would recommend the programme to other medical practitioners as it provides an opportunity to learn about an exciting new area of medicine that few clinicians specialise in.
