Applied and Regenerative Neuroscience

Neuroscientists are discovering exciting ways to modify neurodegenerative disorders using regenerative techniques, especially stem cell and gene therapies. In this new programme world-leading vision researchers teach the complete process of translating discoveries into clinical applications restoring sight. This knowledge will qualify students for careers in a breadth of translational disciplines.

Entry requirements

Applicants with a degree in another area, or experience in life sciences or pharmacology will be considered on an individual basis.

Course modules

Developing translational research; masterclasses in translational and regenerative neuroscience; ocular cell biology; research in practice; translating science into the clinic; cost benefit analysis and health; genetics and epidemiology of ocular disease; introduction to visual neuroscience; microvascular biology; modern aspects of drug discovery; ocular development in health and disease; pharmacogenomics, adverse drug reactions and biomarkers.

Assessment methods

The programme is delivered through a combination of lectures, seminars and student group presentations. Assessment is through a mixture of unseen examinations, coursework (essays, bioinformatic tasks, practicals), a major dissertation, and oral presentations.
