UCL (University College London) has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
Medical advances are transforming the diagnosis and treatment of disease. This course aims to create medical scientists who are not only familiar with these latest scientific advances (e.g. regenerative medicine, precision medicine, stem cell therapy, imaging and nanomedicine), but also with the knowledge of how to translate these advances into clinical realities. Ideally situated within Faculty of Medical Science, where world-leading scientists will actively involve students in their innovate medical research, the course also draws upon expertise the School of Management and the Faculty of Laws, who will provide expert insight on how medical discovery is translated into commercial products (including topics on entrepreneurship, business, intellectual property, health regulation and marketing).
The course will suit students interested not just in medical science but also the business of medical science.
