Regenerative Medicine and Technology
Develop methods that trigger the body to repair or renew itself
Gain all the multidisciplinary knowledge and skills needed to design and market innovative solutions in healthcare.
Regenerative medicine focuses on healing chronic diseases by repairing, replacing or restoring ill or damaged tissue and organs instead of merely treating disease symptoms.
By conducting research and applying state-of-the-art technologies, you will learn to design methods that allow the body to repair itself. The study programme has increasing relevance in our ageing population.
Taught in English, this three-year programme will start in September on condition of a positive accreditation by NVAO, the independent Accreditation Organisation of the Netherlands and Flanders.
During the first year, you learn the basics of science, engineering and medicine. You will train academic, professional and lab skills and explore research projects.
In the second year, you will apply what you have learned in real-life research, studying how tissues and materials interact and simulating complex biological systems to enhance the regeneration process.
In the final year, you’ll choose a minor and a graduation project, and write your thesis.
