Course summary

Regenerative medicine is reshaping clinical medicine as we know it, uncovering new ways to replace, engineer or regenerate cells, tissues and organs lost or injured due to age, disease, or congenital defects. One of the longest-running courses of its kind in the UK, our MSc builds on our reputation for world-class research as a European Centre for Excellence in tissue engineering. Our multidisciplinary course provides a solid foundation in cell biology, human anatomy, physiology and molecular techniques, introducing you to stem cell/gene therapies, new implants, bio/tissue engineering, biomaterials and other novel technologies in this rapidly evolving and exciting discipline. Why study this course?

  • Teaching is informed by our world-class research – 80% ranked world-leading or internationally excellent in Research Excellence Framework, 2021
  • Keele is ranked top 20 in the UK for Pharmacology and Pharmacy (The Complete University Guide 2022).
  • Outstanding facilities at the Guy Hilton Research Centre, a European Centre for Excellence in tissue engineering, with additional laboratories at three main NHS hospitals.
  • Strong industry links provide opportunities to visit clinical settings and industrial partners and hear direct from those working at the cutting-edge of tissue engineering and repair.
  • Opportunity for entrepreneurial development in areas of stem cells, cell and tissue engineering, biotechnology, therapy and drug delivery.
Cell and tissue engineering has the potential to unlock new treatments for some of the biggest health issues facing society, for diseases of the heart, lungs, eyes, muscle, bone, etc as well as offering possibilities for repairing or regenerating cells of the body, joints and organs. Capitalising on our exceptional track record of bench and bedside research in regenerative medicine, our MSc introduces you to this dynamic, ever-evolving discipline, which is bringing hope to millions of patients worldwide. Practical in focus, you’ll gain a solid grounding in cell biology, human anatomy and physiology, and molecular techniques, as well as advanced knowledge of topics in biomaterials, nanotechnology, cell and tissue engineering.
