Syllabus
Prerequisites: No mandatory prerequisite.
For the purposes of a facilitated learning, concepts of Cell Biology, Anatomy, Histology, Pathological Anatomy and Clinical Surgery Sciences are fundamental.
Target skills and knowledge: The emerging field of Regenerative Medicine holds the promise for advancing novel therapeutic solutions to repair and regenerate diseased tissues and organs. Innovative therapeutic strategies are pursued through stem cells, gene engineering, biomaterials and engineered tissues/organs to regenerate heart, blood vessel, lung, skeletal muscle, bone, kidney, liver and nervous system. This course aims to provide with the fundamentals in Stem Cell Biology, Biomaterial Science and Regenerative Medicine, as well as with the essential steps needed to translate a bench research into patient care.
Examination methods: In order to be eligible for examination, the attendance to at least 80% of lessons is required.
The examination modality is written with open and multiple choice questions.
Assessment criteria: The evaluation of the learning level of the student will be based on the understanding of discussed topics, acquisition of proposed concepts and methodologies and ability to apply them in autonomous and context-aware manner.
