Our lectures and workshops in this Summer School will introduce you to various fascinating topics about stem cell biology, tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.

Our Summer School shall be mainly based in Cardiff University's School of Dentistry which is based in the third largest University hospital in the UK! It’s also the only dental school in Wales which provides unique and important leadership in dental research, teaching and patient care.

The academic programme consists of a series of lectures that will introduce you to topics such as:

• Stem cell biology
• Regenerative medicine
• Tissue engineering
• Nanotechnology
• Biomaterials
• Immunology
• Molecular biology

Plus, current clinical applications of stem-cell-based therapy in these areas in Cardiff.

You’ll also get a hands-on laboratory practical in stem cell biology as part of this Summer School which provides training in many widely employed laboratory techniques in biomedicine including stem cell maintenance, proliferation and differentiation, and gain practical skills of biomaterials design and development.

Ensuring the safety and welfare of our staff and students is our priority. We are closely monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, and will continue to evaluate our summer school offering in line with government guidelines relating to COVID-19. If we need to make changes to our 2021 summer school offering in line with government guidelines, we will keep you up-to date.
