MERLN’s scientists are involved in educational activities within a variety of undergraduate and graduate programmes such as the Masters of Biomedical Sciences, University College Maastricht, and the Maastricht Science Programme where we teach and tutor both theoretical as well as practical courses. Our expertise lies in biology, chemistry, materials science and engineering, with distinct emphasis on biomedical applications, including regenerative medicine.
The Masters of Biomedical Sciences (BMS) focuses on state-of-the-art methodology and skills that enable researchers to unravel the molecular and cellular mechanisms in health and disease with the ultimate goal to restore health.
We coordinate one of the five specializations within BMS, "Regenerative Medicine", which aims at creating solutions to restore structure and function of permanently damaged tissues and organs by using a combination of science and technology. Topics focus on both the molecular and biological (including stem cell biology and gene therapies) and technological (including tissue engineering and bio-fabrication technologies) aspects, and the combination thereof within a clinical context.
