Demographic change and the spread of diseases will challenge our society in the future and will place great pressure on health systems. For this reason, procedures and therapies in regenerative medicine are a very promising field, even for diseases that have hitherto been difficult or impossible to treat. First cell therapies, for example to regenerate skin or cartilage, are already being clinically applied and a growing number of cellular therapies are undergoing clinical testing. This underscores the great potential and the impact on society that regenerative medicine holds.
Regenerative Medicine deals with regenerating dysfunctional cells, tissue or organs by means of biologic replacement, in addition to stimulating own regeneration and repair processes.
The program targets graduates of a Master’s Degree program or with a diploma in higher specialized studies in the fields of human medicine, dental medicine or another specialized field, who aim to pursue a career in research.
The PhD program Regenerative Medicine aims to further develop the ability to conduct scientific research independently and to train and support next generation scientists.
