Postgraduate Certificate Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology
Department of Biomedical Science, Faculty of Science
We lead international research in stem cell biology, regenerative medicine and the molecular and cellular basis of disease.
About the course
This course provides comprehensive training in molecular cellular and developmental biology, with particular emphasis on animal systems. If you're looking to develop new skills for your career, or prepare for a higher degree such as an MSc or PhD, this is an ideal refresher or top-up course.
We’ll also give you practical training in modern molecular cell biology laboratory techniques, including experimental design, analysis and presentation.
You'll gain in-depth knowledge and understanding of the processes that govern embryonic development. You’ll also learn about the molecular and genetic processes that underpin cell biology of body systems.
Lectures and practicals will highlight the relevance of developmental and cell biology to the fields of stem cell and cancer biology, cellular homeostasis and tissue regeneration, and to the process of normal ageing.
