u-stem courses will consist of a series of elective and interactive activities held by international recognized experts in the field of stem cells, gene therapy and tissue engineering. Participants will then have the opportunity to attend the research laboratories of teachers with the aim:
i) to carry out practical laboratory experiments on how to grow, differentiate and manipulate stem cells;
ii) to learn the mechanisms / techniques of gene editing and transplantation of stem cells in experimental models,
iii) to increase / implement the knowledge and creativity for formulating, then resolving a scientific problem.
iv) know how to do a critical analysis of scientific results
v) communicating results.
Upon completion of the master, students can expect to work in basic or applied research in different fields of stem cell biology and gene editing, either by undertaking a PhD, or by finding employment in the research and development professions in the academic and private research institutes, in non-profit foundations, or in corporate sectors, particularly in the field of biotechnology and regenerative medicine. Courses will be focusing on preparing students for the following jobs/careers :
i) Academic research
ii) Non academic research applied to human disease
iii) Regulatory agencies responsible for setting standards in stem cell and genome editing for clinical applications
iv) Good manufacturing practice (GMP) laboratories for stem cell and tissue engineering
v) Ethics committees
u-stem faculty members will support students to help with contacts for exploring job opportunities and with indications for preparing job interviews.
