Summary

 

Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine  - BIOE97158

Aims

This module will introduce you to the fundamental concepts of normal tissue development and how researchers have used this information to imitate nature in a lab setting, engineering cells and tissues that may be used to model diseases, treat disease, or develop drugs. Topics that you have the opportunity to discuss include: Societal challenges for tissue engineering Cell building blocks Normal tissue development and regeneration Adult stem cells -Induced pluripotent stem cells Challenges in imitating nature Cell and tissue therapy Gene therapy Drug development

Lecturer

Medical and Biochemical Science 2  - BIOE50007

Aims

 In this module you will build on your knowledge from Medical and Biochemical Science 1 module, and be introduced to new cellular and physiological concepts. The module aims to introduce you to further physiological systems with a strong emphasis on the nervous system and to introduce you to regulators and modulators of gene expression, i.e. genetics and epigenetics, with a specific focus on methylation. The module will also allow you to build competence with new wet lab skills and allow you to gain familiarity with a range of lab techniques that may be required in final year projects.
