All applicants: a dental, medical or biological sciences qualification.
Applications must be made online using King's online application portal and a non-refundable application fee of £40 applies. Completed applications for September entry (which will normally consist of an online application form, both references, a transcript of previous degrees and a CV) will not be considered until after the deadline date (1 July).
Applicants must demonstrate a focused interest in regenerative dentistry and a strong academic background. Please submit a separate CV in addition to the application form.
The deadline for applications is 02 September for 2016 entry. Note that funding deadlines may be earlier. Applications will be considered subject to availability of places, so we encourage you to submit your application as soon as possible. International applications must be received by 29 July to allow sufficient time for visa processing.
Taught course elements include: Introduction to stem cells, ES and iPS, Dental stem cells, Endogenous dentine repair, Endodontic applications of stem cells, Whole tooth regeneration, Scaffolds and bone regeneration, Salivary gland regeneration, Periodontal ligament restoration, GMP cell culture.
Research and practical elements include a research project, practical demonstrations of dental pulp stem cell culture combined with critical evaluation of research methods and approaches in dental stem cell biology.Examples of research projects:
Regenerative dentistry is for both dentists and biological scientists who desire to learn more about the latest advances in cell and molecule-based dentistry and also gain experience in carrying out laboratory-based, cutting-edge research in dental stem cell biology.
Written exam, practical tests and written reports, seminar presentation.
All modules are compulsory.
For me, already holding a PhD, the Regenerative Dentistry MSc represented the missing thing. Its unique topic convinced me to apply and it was the best year in my scientific life. The great mix between lectures and lab work was doubled by the excellent libraries at King’s.
This course offered me an approach to link clinical dentistry and experimental molecular science. Taught by world experts, it gave me deep understanding of modern molecular and stem cell biology, and how to use this knowledge in research. Not only have I learned state-of-the-art laboratory techniques, but also encountered an interdisciplinary environment that has allowed me to explore new, exciting leads outside the centre of traditional dentistry. I'm now working in clinical practice with the prospect of further studies at a doctoral level or in a clinical specialty.
This unique master's course deals with the latest developments in both regenerative dentistry and medicine, including dental stem cells culture, iPS and ES cells, tooth bioengineering, cell signalling, and many other aspects regarding the craniofacial region and stem cell biology. Now, I'm doing my PhD at King's, under the supervision of Dr. Isabelle Miletich who has particular expertise in salivary gland development and regeneration.
The programme helped me explore different aspects of craniofacial development and stem cell biology. It dramatically enhanced my lab and research skills, with state-of-the-art resources and facilities, and a cooperative and passionate environment. I’ve been able to land opportunities to work in top research centres back home, which made me more confident to embark on my PhD.
King’s is world-renowned in the field of research and I chose to pursue the Regenerative Dentistry MSc here because the course structure was so ingeniously designed. Each module was planned to be at par with the current research scenarios in the field of Regenerative Dentistry and the faculty ever so supportive!
I chose to do the MSc in Regenerative Dentistry because it is a unique course in the whole world. Professor Paul Sharpe nailed the program filling it with the most current subjects in Regenerative Dentistry and provided us with all the attention and material we needed to understand the content of the course.
