Pam astudio’r cwrs hwn

The Programme provides in-depth training in this branch of biomedical science, including stem cell biology, biomaterials and tissue/organ engineering.

With an ageing population and chronic diseases on the rise, there is a need for more effective medical treatments and therefore a need for trained tissue engineering researchers to deliver these technologies.

Tissue engineering and regenerative medicine is an ever-emerging interdisciplinary field of biomedical research; which combines life sciences, biology and engineering, to progress the repair, replacement and enhancement of diseased and damaged tissues.

It’s a field that has the potential to deliver treatments for diseases, injuries and disorders where currently people have no options.

The Programme provides in-depth training in this branch of biomedical science, including stem cell biology, biomaterials and tissue/organ engineering. The MSc offers a balanced combination of theory and practice; and can serve either as preparation for a PhD or as a self-contained master’s qualification.

The programme is both lecture and laboratory based; benefiting from taught modules that cover areas such as Cellular & Molecular Biology and Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine and culminating in a hands-on 5-month research project. It also includes several opportunities to visit relevant clinical settings and local industrial partners.

The programme further benefits from affiliation and close involvement with the Cardiff Institute of Tissue Engineering and Repair (CITER).  CITER is an interdisciplinary research network between the Schools of Biosciences, Chemistry, Dentistry, Engineering, Healthcare Sciences, Medicine, Optometry and Pharmacy. You will therefore study within a multidisciplinary community with internationally excellent academic, research and clinical expertise not available at many other institutions.

Based at The University Hospital of Wales (the 3rd largest university hospital in the UK), you will develop technical laboratory skills and will be presented with a number of opportunities to extend your communication and presentation skills, both written and orally.

You will acquire a number of specific skills, such as the ability to collect, analyse and interpret a range of complex quantitative and qualitative data. You will also develop a number of valuable laboratory research-based skills, through the completion of a 5-month research project of your choice*, which will be presented as a poster at the annual CITER scientific meeting.

Graduates from this Programme will have a broad spectrum of knowledge and a variety of skills, making them highly attractive both to potential employers and research establishments in this fast-developing sector.

*subject to supervisor status.

Gabriela, MSc Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine
After finishing my Bachelor's degree in Biochemistry in Spain, I was looking for a more specific and challenging field. I got interested in the development of tissues by 3D bioprinting and so I chose to focus on this. The facilities were incredibly good, and I found all the staff really helpful and always open to questions and new ideas. In my project, I focused on the development of a new fibrin-based bioink that will hopefully help in the creation of a human skin model. The design of the composition of this bioink was challenging as there was not any previous work done with it in the model of bioprinter used in the lab; this is what made the project even more interesting and exciting for me. I would totally recommend this course to any person with a high interest in research and willing to focus their future career in a developing field as it will offer many opportunities.

Strwythur y cwrs

MSc Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine commences in September each year with Stage 1, a 6-month, taught component.

Stage 1 is taught almost entirely at a small group teaching level, supported by laboratory sessions, interactive workshops and tutorials, in addition to visits to relevant hospital clinics and local companies involved in producing tissue engineering and repair therapies. Modules are assessed by various written assignments, presentations and formal examinations.

On completing Stage 1, students undertake a 5-month, laboratory-based research project within the CITER network, between April-September (Stage 2). Projects are chosen by students from topics supplied by academic supervisors within CITER. Previous student projects have been in research areas such as embryonic or mesenchymal stem cell biology; cartilage, bone, skin or oral tissue repair; fibrosis; and biomaterials and drug delivery. Stage 2 culminates in the submission of an MSc Dissertation, based on MSc Project findings

Mae'r modiwlau a ddangosir yn esiampl o'r cwricwlwm arferol. Byddant yn cael eu hadolygu cyn blwyddyn academaidd 2020/21. Bydd y modiwlau terfynol yn cael eu cyhoeddi erbyn mis Medi 2020.

The MSc in Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine is a one year, full-time Programme. The MSc Programme commences in September each year with Stage 1, a 6-month, taught component involving four compulsory Modules.

On completing Stage 1, students undertake a 5-month, laboratory-based research project within the CITER network, between April-September (Stage 2). Stage 2 culminates in the submission of an MSc Dissertation, based on MSc Project findings.

Mae'r Brifysgol wedi ymrwymo i ddarparu amrywiaeth eang o opsiynau modiwl lle’n bosibl. Ond byddwch yn ymwybodol er y byddwn yn gwneud pob ymdrech i gynnig dewis, gall hyn gael ei gyfyngu mewn rhai amgylchiadau. Y rheswm am hyn yw'r ffaith mai dim ond nifer cyfyngedig o leoedd sydd ar gael ar rai modiwlau, a gaiff eu dyrannu ar sail y cyntaf i'r felin. Mae'n ofynnol i fodiwlau eraill sicrhau isafswm nifer o fyfyrwyr cyn gallu eu cynnal, er mwyn gwneud yn siŵr y gellir cyflwyno addysg o ansawdd priodol. Gall modiwlau gael eu cyfyngu oherwydd gwrthdaro yn yr amserlen hefyd, ac er bod y Brifysgol yn ymdrechu i amharu cyn lleied â phosibl ar eich dewis, byddai'n syniad da i chi ofyn am gyngor gan yr Ysgol berthnasol am y dewisiadau modiwl sydd ar gael.

The MSc tissue engineering course is a fantastic course teaching the ethical, social, clinical and bimolecular aspects of modern tissue engineering and translational research with a final six month dissertation project in a world class laboratory. The course attracts students from all over the world and provides many opportunities to engage in a supportive and friendly environment. For me, this course was vital for my progression to becoming an independent researcher. I found that the lectures were really engaging, allowing me to develop my knowledge of tissue engineering. I was then able to apply this to my laboratory project. For me the project was the best part of this course, as it allowed me to develop key laboratory skills and undertake novel research on wound healing in a world class facility.
