Learn how regenerative medicine (RM) may hold the potential to bring (human and animal) therapies from the lab into the clinic. The convergence of science, technology and medicine in Utrecht are highlighted in this week-long course. This course is comprised of meeting experts, patients, hands-on bench work, and demonstrations. The course allows a high amount of interaction with lecturers, keynote speakers and fellow participants.

Regenerative Medicine (RM) is an exciting field that holds much promise for generating innovative therapies for a wide variety of diseases and disorders. RM focuses on harnessing the body’s own repair mechanisms to replace or heal damaged tissues and organs. In this way, it is hoped that the shortage and rejection of transplanted donor organs may be solved in the future. You’ll engage with other international students on the importance of RM and how it can contribute to healthcare and you will gain insight into the novel treatments of tomorrow.

In this intensive course you will gain a unique overview of RM. This field has the ability to touch every ailment, ranging from cancer to heart disease to nervous disorders. This multidisciplinary field incorporates stem cell biology, tissue engineering, biomaterials engineering, and transplantation science. In addition, it also includes various enabling technologies and clinical application areas, with the ultimate goal of improving patient lives. In this interactive course at a beginning Masters level, you’ll learn the basics of regenerative medicine, stem cell biology and technologies, as well as how this science is translated and implemented into patient care. The course combines lectures, tutorials with hands-on experiments, demonstrations and tours.

We encourage you to take this course in combination with the 3D Printing and Biofabrication summer school course.
