Our Regenerative Medicine & Innovation Technology Intercalated BSc offers you the opportunity to study the fascinating and rapidly growing interdisciplinary field of regenerative medicine, which focuses on the repair, replacement or regeneration of tissues and organs. We combine this with a study of how interactions with microbial communities impact human diseases, which will teach you the concepts behind personalised medicine. For more information, including details on how to apply, see our Intercalated BSc pages. Please note the below application deadlines: - 26 January 2022 (King's applicants) - 2 March 2022 (External applicants)

Key benefits

  • Learn vital skills in a cutting-edge field of medicine.
  • Opportunities to conduct laboratory research and work with experts in an active research environment
  • Wide selection of optional modules to support individual learning.
  • Opportunities to interact with MSc students
  • Learn from and work closely with experts in the field

Course Aims

  • Regenerative medicine is at the forefront of the new wave of modern treatments, including personalised medicine. Its applications are being increasingly used in a variety of medical and dental fields in a variety of ways, from use of stem cells and novel biomaterials in treating physical injuries and conditions, to the use of microbiome modulation in treating chronic infections and inflammatory diseases. This iBSc will prepare medical school graduates to understand and take full advantage of these new approaches to diagnosis and treatment currently being developed and expanded within the NHS. The programme prepares students for pathways leading to consultant positions in dental and medical fields, as well as providing a foundation for exploitation through a higher research degree.

Teaching methods - what to expect

We will use a delivery method that will ensure students have a rich, exciting experience from the start. The course takes a blended learning approach to combine face-to-face teaching with digital teaching, to combine the acquisition of knowledge with development of an integrated understanding of some of the cutting-edge sciences in regenerative medicine.

Lecture material will combine pure science with clinical applications of this knowledge to provide a firm platform in the current theories and subject area.

Scholarship is student and research centred, designed for students to experience authentic research activities through approaches such as enquiry, laboratory investigation and problem-based learning.

 

Assessment

    Your performance will be assessed through a combination of coursework and written examinations. Forms of assessment may typically include laboratory dissertation, worksheets and oral presentations.

     

    Coursework contributes approximately 90% and examinations approximately 10% to your final mark for core modules.
