Professional Master in Stem Cells, organogenesis and Regenerative Medicine


Stem cells can differentiate into all the specialized cells in multicellular organisms. They also maintain the normal turnover of regenerative organs. This program provides a high level of theoretical and practical training on cell and stem cell biology and a critical understanding of the major topics in stem cell and developmental biology. At the end of the program, the students will acquire the knowledge needed to understand stem cells and to evaluate the corresponding clinical and ethical processes.

Acquired Skills

Technical approaches and theoretical skills in stem cell biology.
