Module content and teaching
This module introduces the students to the scientific principles underpinning the application of biotechnology to the medical sector. The focus is on design and development of stem cell-based approaches, translation of fundamental developmental biology to therapeutic endpoints, use of functional biomaterials, and tissue engineering. The aim is to give the students a clear understanding of regenerative medicine and the role of biotechnology in this context.
Principal learning outcomes
To develop an understanding of the scientific basis underpinning regenerative medicine from cell- to tissue-scale and the associated biotechnological principles leading to commercial implementation.
