Graduate Certificate (Gr. Cert.) Regenerative Medicine (15 credits)

Offered by: Medicine     Degree: C-RMED

Program Requirements

The Graduate Certificate in Regenerative Medicine focuses on biology of stem cells, their uses in diagnostic and therapeutic applications, the practicalities of generating them, and using and modifying them for clinical translation. Exploration of the combination of stem cell-based model systems for drug discovery and disease modelling as well as the ethical implications of their use.
