Course Outline
SchoolSchool of Biomedical Sciences CollegeCollege of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine
Credit level (Normal year taken)SCQF Level 10 (Year 4 Undergraduate) AvailabilityNot available to visiting students
SCQF Credits10 ECTS Credits5
SummaryThe purpose of the course is to provide a basic grounding in the principles and practice of regenerative medicine, largely for an audience who will be the clinical and laboratory scientists involved in production and delivery of these therapeutics.
The course will cover basic molecular and developmental biology relevant to the understanding of differentiation and development at the molecular, cellular and organismal levels. It will cover the production of lines of multipotent and pluripotent stem cells, the conditions necessary to induce their differentiation into specific lineages and cell types, and the applications of these clinically and commercially.
In terms of the clinical applications, aspects of inherited or acquired diseases will be covered, that are, or in the future could be, treated by stem cell therapies. For commercial applications, the use of stem cell derived ┐artificial organs┐ in screening other therapeutics will be addressed.
The course will describe practical aspects of cell culture and molecular assays relevant to the field of stem cell biology, and will cover aspects of quality control and quality assurance necessary for the adequate delivery of stem cell based therapies within current legislative frameworks.
