The research in the Regenerative Medicine programme offered by The University of Edinburgh is aimed at developing new treatments for major diseases including cancer, heart disease, diabetes, degenerative diseases such as multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's disease, and liver failure.
The Centre houses 26 research groups and has a staff of more than 230 scientists, graduate students, support and ancillary staff.
Our work is currently organised into five themes. To promote collaboration within the Centre, we adopt a flexible approach to these themes with each Principal Investigator (PI) having one or more secondary affiliations.
Two themes focus on fundamental research: pluripotency and IPS, and lineage and cell specification.
The other three aim to translate fundamental research discoveries into clinical programmes relevant to brain, blood and liver diseases and to tissue repair.
The Centre has strong collaborative links to other centres within the University, such as the Euan MacDonald Centre for MND Research, the MS Centre and the Roslin Institute.
We also invest in technological development in all areas.
Always verify the dates on the programme website.

Training and support
Training within the Centre is provided through a structured series of seminars and literature reviews, in addition to the laboratory and scientific skills training imparted to students by their PIs. Generic training in presentation skills, project management and writing skills is delivered through the University of Edinburgh's Institute of Academic Development (IAD).
