Degree: Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine MSc

Tom’s Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine MSc gave him the theoretical knowledge and practical skills needed to succeed in the field. He now works in the Centre for Stem Cell Biology at Sheffield as a Research Technician, where he gets to apply his degree every day.

“The Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine MSc has offered me a fantastic opportunity to further expand the scope of my studies and delve deep into the field of regenerative medicine. The course covered both the theoretical side of stem cell biology as well as fundamental practical techniques.

“Alongside the taught aspects of the course, I was able to complete a lab project within the department. Here I had the opportunity to get first-hand experience in conducting and managing my own research, taking it from its earliest stages to eventually presenting the final data to colleagues and peers. To be able to contribute to the forefront of scientific research is a great privilege and to do so within the Department of Biomedical Sciences was certainly a highlight for me.

“The enthusiasm of the teaching staff has ignited my desire to further pursue a career within the field. I am currently working within the Centre for Stem Cell Biology at Sheffield as a Research Technician, which allows me to put much of the skills learned through the MSc into practice. This degree has been a wonderful experience and of great benefit.”
