Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

Learning objectives

Knowledge

  • Demonstrate knowledge about developmental, molecular biological, biological, medical and engineering concepts relevant for cell-based regenerative approaches

Skills

  • Apply an understanding of the processes that determine the molecular level cellular responses into schemes that aim to replace human tissues or organs, or aim at the restoration of physiological state of thereof
  • Design rational biotherapies for relevant human diseases using appropriate set of molecular biological and engineering tools
  • Assess the prospective value of proposed solutions, including medical significance and feasibility, both at the theoretical and empirical levels
  • Apply different cell-based regenerative and tissue engineering approaches to treat intractable human diseases

Competences

  • Demonstrate insight into molecular processes that underlie cell-cell as well as cell-material interactions and understand how knowledge of these processes can be applied for the benefit of tissue regeneration in-vivo and engineering of tissues in-vitro
  • Research, synthesise, and critically appreciate knowledge available across different fields to account for treatment options that are viable from the point of currently established medical criteria
  • Evaluate and identify novel areas of interest, the theoretical and practical knowledge of which is necessary, in order to accomplish a successful regenerative therapeutic paradigm

Type of instruction

  • Teaching varies between lectures, workshops, (group) exercises and individual study
