Enrolment in an approved Honours in the discipline of Regenerative medicine




The Honours year aims to develop analytic abilities, research skills, and communication skills, as well as provide students with advanced knowledge in specific areas of:

  • heart and muscle development and regeneration
  • immunity and regeneration
  • stem cells, cancer and regeneration
  • neural regeneration.

In this unit, training is in the context of a scientific project, with an aim to train students in cutting edge scientific techniques as well as developing broad generic skills. Students undertake a supervised research project of a publishable standard that forms the basis of a thesis due at the end of the year. Students will also present seminars on their research throughout the year.


On completion of this unit students will be able to:

  1. Critically review the scientific literature that underpins the area of the research project;
  2. Undertake a supervised research project and contribute to project design and management;
  3. Apply appropriate laboratory techniques, research methodologies and data analysis methods to collect, interpret and report research findings;
  4. Effectively present research and findings orally showing a firm grasp of the area;
  5. Analyse research undertaken in the context of the discipline area and report findings in an extended written report.


Assessment will be a submission of a research thesis: 85%

Two seminars: 15%
