Course summary

Our aim is to train a new generation of researchers with expertise in stem cell culture, engineering, regulation and translation in the regenerative medicine space, to help fill the skills shortage in the industrial life sciences sector. The UK and further afield hosts a rapidly growing regenerative medicine sector with major centres focussed on production of cellular and acellular therapies and a growth of clinical trialling. Therefore, there is increasing demand for recruits with highly specialised regenerative medicine experience.


  • Train in our centre for excellence, specialising in stem cell science and their potential within regenerative medicine.
  • Receive expert teaching, from academics and clinicians, providing in depth understanding on the concepts of stem cells and the translation aims.
  • With a focus on stem cells, our MSc will address unmet skills shortages in interdisciplinary sciences
  • You will be equipped throughout your MSc to work experimentally across disciplines, with industry and clinicians.
  • Work with established clinicians with strong links to Queen Elizabeth University Hospital, stratifying our stem cell models to different diseases, such as bone (osteoporosis), cartilage (arthritis), bone marrow (cancer dormancy, haematopoiesis), skin (toxicology, wound healing), nerve and infection (airway, bone).
  • Further focus will be on your ability to bioengineer 3D microenvironments to enable stem cell growth and differentiation, creating 3D models for Pharma and toxicology testing.
  • Work on an interdisciplinary project in your final semester, which will lie at the interface between bioengineering and life sciences.


Following completion, graduates will be equipped with the skills to progress with a career in stem cell engineering and regenerative medicine directly, through a variety of means such as :

  • Regulation (e.g. MHRA, SNBTS, CGTC),
  • Industry (e.g. regenerative medicine, pharma, toxicology),
  • Academia ,
  • Patenting and IP,
  • Local government (governance and law)
  • Science writing,
  • Further research training via a PhD.
