Welcome to the second year!

Friday August 28th is the first day of the second year for our distance learning students. We will welcome them back to the NCBES and kick off the year's lectures with a module on Molecular and Regenerative Medicine. Of the 6 modules to be completed by the students over the next two semesters, Mol and Regen Med has the most academic contributors (6 all together!). This is because of the wide range of topics covered, from Cancer to Immunology, Apoptosis, neurodegenerative disorders and regenerative medicine. The rest of the year will be taken up with completion of six out of 9 other specialist modules including Biomechanics, Tissue Engineering, Pharmacology and Toxicology, Stereology, Product Development, Validation and Regulation, Project Management, Experimental Design and Data analysis and Lasers. Staff at the NCBES are looking forward to helping the students through the year and guiding them through completion of their research project. More on these in future postings!
