MSc by research

We are seeking views on the introduction of a new on-campus Masters by Research in regenerative medicine and tissue repair. 


Successful advancement of tissue regeneration and repair relies on combining fundamental and translational research expertise in areas of regenerative medicine, developmental biology, stem cell biology and inflammation research. Such a cross-disciplinary approach will underpin the development of novel cell - and drug-based therapies to stimulate repair of tissues damaged due to congenital conditions, trauma or disease. We wish to offer a novel Masters by Research programme (one year, full-time) at The University of Edinburgh Medical School to train the next generation of experts in tissue regeneration and repair.

Who is it for?

Our programme is aimed at undergraduate students and professionals who are considering pursuing or advancing a career in research, through a PhD or in professional roles in biotech and medtech. The programme is designed to expand their knowledge of regenerative medicine concepts, with a strong emphasis on the interdisciplinary research aspect underpinning this area of biomedicine. The programme will teach students a range of practical research skills as well as good research practice, presenting skills and writing skills, resulting in well-rounded researchers. The core of the programme will consist of two 20-week laboratory research projects in laboratories at the MRC Centre for Regenerative Medicine.


We are inviting you to take part in a survey to help us develop this new postgraduate opportunity. It will take approximately 5 minutes to complete and all of your responses will remain strictly confidential. All we ask is that you answer the questions as honestly and completely as you can.
