World-class research training

This 4-year PhD programme aspires to educate the next generation of leaders and influencers in regenerative medicine. It will deliver bespoke, cross-disciplinary training to equip graduates with the skills to drive regenerative medicine’s potential to advance human health.

Students on the programme will be supervised and mentored by world-renowned experts in stem cell research, regenerative medicine, inflammation research and tissue repair. The programme is hosted by IRR at Edinburgh BioQuarter, a vibrant research environment which supports scientists and clinicians in translating their research into the clinic.

Year one: Foundation training and research rotation projects

You will undertake laboratory skills training and will attend seminars and journal clubs. You will receive training in good research practice, scientific reasoning, research ethics and the critical assessment of research papers. You will carry out two 20-week research projects and disseminate your findings through written and oral presentations.

Years two to four: PhD research project

After the rotation projects, you will select your PhD topic and design a detailed research proposal under guidance of your supervisor. Projects will span the breath of research areas at IRR, ranging from fundamental science to clinical translation projects.

You will receive training and support in state-of-the-art research facilities. Our students will become well-rounded graduates, skilled in working across various disciplines underpinning stem cell and regenerative medicine and equipped to take on challenging roles within academic, healthcare or industrial environments.
