MSc Nanotechnology and Regenerative Medicine

  • DeadlineStudy Details:

    MSc 1 year full-time, 2 years part-time, 5 years flexible

Course Description

This MSc Nanotechnology and Regenerative Medicine equips you with a critical understanding of how nanotechnology and regenerative medicine technologies can be used for the improved detection and treatment of disease.

You will learn about the use of stem cells in medicine, tissue engineering for tissue and organ regeneration, and the use of biomaterials for directing cell behaviour. We cover the regulatory, ethical, and commercial hurdles involved in translating these emerging technologies into products that can benefit patients.

Our modules are offered by blended learning, which includes a mix of face-to-face teaching and online study. If you study with us full-time, you will be on campus most days each week.

The MSc offers an exciting opportunity to study within the world-leading medical research environment of the UCL Division of Surgery & Interventional Science. You will focus on real medical needs, work on your own cutting-edge research, and graduate in a strong position to pursue a career in nanomedicine or regenerative medicine.
