Stem cell research is one of most exciting and rapidly developing areas in current biomedical science. This is a field rich in fundamental questions that at the same time offers unparalleled translational prospects for future healthcare. The four-year PhD programme in Stem Cell Biology and Medicine is unique in the UK in focus and scope.

This programme offers the students exposure to cutting-edge basic science and translational research in a wide range of stem cell systems. The overall goal of the programme is to produce a cadre of highly trained PhD graduates who will have generated significant and original research findings for their thesis and are fully prepared for successful postdoctoral research in basic or applied stem cell biology.
