Due to COVID-19, CITER's overall operations had to be reduced. As a result, CITER can only be contacted by email for the time being.  We will however endeavour to provide a reply to any queries in a timely manner. The CITER website will continue to be updated regularly.

This MSc programme has been established since 2006. It is aimed at students who wish to experience the stimulating challenges of interface research in the field of tissue engineering and repair.

Our research is organised into three themes - stem cell science, tissue engineering and repair, and disease translation.

I would strongly encourage all young investigators to apply for CITER funding. As an early career researcher, it is incredibly encouraging and motivating to receive such a prestigious award. I have no doubt that the impact of this award on my professional maturity and independence as a researcher will be long-term and internationally recognised.

The award enabled me to travel as a visiting Research Fellow to my collaborator for a few days each month together with attending numerous related conferences to present my work. This bursary has provided an important first step towards developing this technology for utilisation in Cardiff and embarking on a programme of independent research.
