Course summary


Our multidisciplinary Tissue Engineering & Innovation Technology MRes offers you the opportunity to undertake research in a rapidly evolving field of regenerative medicine with new developments in tissue engineering, biomaterials, bone substitutes, 3D printing for customised implants and prostheses, imaging, dental restoratives and drug delivery. Our research addresses fundamental challenges in biomedicine and dentistry, and aims to create a step-change in the way biological systems are deciphered that goes well beyond current state of the art. You will work with academics directing a wide range of cutting-edge research projects, with emphasis on turning early-stage innovations into new health products.

Course detail

This course will give you a deep understanding of one of the most significant and relevant areas of biomedical and translational research, including new therapeutic applications. You will develop scientific research skills in the field of tissue engineering that includes strategies to develop and evaluate biomaterials, cell-biomaterial interaction and imaging modalities. The course is predominantly research-oriented and also includes journal club presentations and critical reviews with taught components providing comprehensive insights into stem cells, scaffolds for tissue engineering, cell material interaction and design strategies for future developments alongside exploration of state of the art research activities and techniques in the field. Important for entrepreneurs, a unique module on innovation technology provides information on pathways to licensing and commercialisation of medical devices, covering regulatory requirements and processes, product design, IP and business/marketing requirements. Students will undertake a laboratory-based research project, supervised by an academic member of staff, gaining insight into research methodologies and acquiring valuable laboratory experience. This research training and skills development will provide a firm foundation to pursue a PhD or a career in industry. The key research project areas will include tissue engineering, biomaterials and stem cell approaches for tissue regeneration, new generation of metallo-pharmaceuticals, chemical biology, cell tracking and labelling methodologies and imaging.

Teaching and assessment

We will use a delivery method that will ensure students have a rich, exciting experience from the start. Face to face teaching will be complemented and supported with innovative technology so that students also experience elements of digital learning and assessment.

Career prospects

Successful completion of the MRes course will prepare you for a variety of career opportunities that require high level research skills. This programme is highly suited for students who would like to pursue a career in academia, research and development sector, senior management, industry and engineering in healthcare
