MSc program

Regenerative medicine, clinical and industrial delivery. A one year programme involving both taught and practical elements leading to the award of a Master’s degree.


Regenerative Medicine harnesses the intrinsic developmental programs by which the tissues and organs of the body are laid down, as well as the natural repair and regenerative capacity of the body, to provide solutions to the problems of degenerative diseases. These solutions may concern direct tissue replacement, indirect mechanisms to ameliorate disease or enhance intrinsic tissue repair, or the development of pharmaceutical therapies.  As such, it is of increasing interest to Life Sciences industries that seek to provide products and processes to the healthcare sector, and to healthcare providers such as the NHS.

The University of Edinburgh is an internationally recognised centre of excellence in Regenerative Medicine, and hosts the MRC Centre for Regenerative Medicine (CRM), which brings together world-leading basic stem cell research and established clinical excellence to deliver a "bench-to-bedside" approach in addressing the challenges posed by degenerative diseases. With its broad scope and integrated approach, the CRM is uniquely placed to deliver the appropriate training required by the next generation of skilled professionals in this key area of Life Sciences.
