Course Summary

The first course of its kind in the UK, the Stem Cell & Regenerative Therapies: From Bench to Market MSc combines biological and medical science with business, law and bioethics. Designed to develop expertise in the biological, commercial and regulatory aspects of cellular therapies and its applications in biomedicine, the course equips students to pursue a business-based career in cellular therapy or related disciplines.

Description

Cellular therapies have attracted much interest in recent years in virtually all disciplines of medicine with over 2,700 clinical trials enrolled between 2000 and 2010. As of today, has in excess of 27,800 registered cellular therapy clinical trials.
