Postgraduate study in stem cell technology at the University of Nottingham

Postgraduate Opportunities

University of Nottingham

Stem cell technology is a rapidly developing field that combines the efforts of cell biologists, geneticists, and clinicians and offers hope of effective treatment for a variety of malignant and non-malignant diseases.

Our MSc Stem Cell Technology is the 'original' and longest running course of its kind in the UK and will set you up for a life-changing career in this cutting-edge field. Our track record shows 90% of graduates secure stem cell technology-related posts including PhDs, positions in industry and government-funded agencies.

The University of Nottingham is in the top 1% of universities worldwide and our Centre for Stem Cells, Tissue Engineering and Modelling is internationally renowned for teaching and research.

World-class experience
Feedback shows our students enjoy the high level of practical experience they gain on this course. All students take part in lab sessions which range from culturing human embryonic stem cells to isolating bone and brain stem cells - or to working with bioreactors and scaffolds for tissue engineering.
Business and patenting are essential if stem cell science is to be translated into patient treatment. This is why we run The Business Plan Competition to provide you with the skills you need to make the transition into stem cell companies.

From May to August, students complete a summer project aligned with academics working at the cutting edge of research. This gives you an opportunity to apply your practical skills to real-life research and work alongside world-class experts.
