You’ll study the genes and molecules that control cell growth, differentiation and morphogenesis that create tissues, organs and individuals. You’ll learn in facilities with outstanding provision for experimental work, using a range of model, plant and vertebrate organisms. The course is ideal if you would like to specialise further in a particular field, or if you would like to change direction from your first science degree.
You’ll learn with some of the world’s leading academics in a welcoming and collaborative environment that has strong interdisciplinary links. You will be able to select from a diverse range of topics and projects to tailor your course.
You will have the opportunity to study as part of the Centre for Regenerative Medicine at Bath. The Centre enables work in regenerative medicine to be underpinned by an understanding of normal developmental organisms.
