The goal of this programme is to train a new generation of researchers in regenerative medicine.
Students undertake 12-week rotations in three different laboratories which they will select from a list of supervisors participating in the programme. Supervisors have been selected across King’s campuses for their expertise in core areas of relevance to regenerative medicine. In addition to lab based projects, students will also attend experimental skills workshops (e.g. statistics and imaging), lectures in cell therapy and will also have the opportunity to write a scientific review for potential publication.
Students will choose one of their rotation projects to further develop into their thesis work for the final three years of the programme. Each student will have the opportunity to undertake an internship (ranging from a few days to three months) to enhance lab skills; provide exposure to different working environments (including the commercial sector); foster collaborations and stimulate interdisciplinary research.
Students will take part in classes and evening talks to gain perspectives on diverse aspects of a research career and regenerative medicine. Presenting their work in multiple settings including an international conference will further aide networking opportunities. Access to King’s Researcher Development Unit will further enable graduation with excellent career prospects.
