First Open-Day for the new MSc Programme in Clinical Cell and Tissue Engineering on Wednesday 4th June at the Royal Free Hospital.

MSc Clinical Cell & Tissue Engineering
UCL is a World leader in clinical trials of advanced therapy medicines (ATMPs) and has created a new, part-time taught course in Clinical Cell & Tissue Engineering (CCTE) to support this field. The program which has been funded in part by AGORA is designed to educate scientists, technicians and clinicians in this rapidly expanding field. It will be taught by research scientists and academic clinicians from the UK and other EU countries who are actively involved in frontline research delivery. Students will learn about the basic science behind cell and tissue engineering and receive practical tuition in production of advanced medicinal products to EU GMP. The course will cover regulation of procurement, manufacture, delivery and clinical trials and will include course units in pre-clinical research, validation of GMP processes, quality control, facility design/layout, process development as well as clinical presentations on the latest trials. The course offers a variety of optional modules allowing students to tailor the course to their specific interests or needs.

Qualifications:

Certificate in Clinical Cell & Tissue Engineering – 2 terms in year 1

Diploma in Clinical Cell & Tissue Engineering – 5 terms in years 1 and 2

MSc Clinical Cell & Tissue Engineering – 6 terms in years 1 and 2 including a research project

Who is the course for?

The program is designed for those with undergraduate qualifications in the life sciences, scientists, clinicians, and other healthcare professionals and especially individuals from the pharmaceutical and biotech industries. The knowledge and transferable skills developed in the course will be suitable for those in an industrial or healthcare setting, as well as those individuals contemplating further PhD or medical studies and especially those working in or planning careers in the biopharmaceutical industry or the blood and tissue services sector.
