The Graduate Certificate in Regenerative Medicine

The Graduate Certificate in Regenerative Medicine focuses on biology of stem cells, their uses in diagnostic and therapeutic applications, the practicalities of generating them, and using and modifying them for clinical translation. Exploration of the combination of stem cell-based model systems for drug discovery and disease modelling as well as the ethical implications of their use.

Required Courses (9 credits):

  • FMED 525 Foundations of Translational Science (3 credits)
  • HGEN 675 Stem Cell Biology (3 credits)
  • PHAR 508 Drug Discovery and Development (3 credits)

Complementary Courses (6 credits):

  • CHEE 512 Stem Cell Bioprocess Engineering (3 credits)
  • EXMD 501 Clinical Applications of Regenerative Medicine (3 credits)
  • EXMD 505 Directed Readings in Regenerative Medicine (3 credits)
  • HGEN 660 Genetics and Bioethics (3 credits)


Two new courses were specifically designed for the Graduate Certificate Program:

EXMD 501 (3 credits, Fall 2019): Clinical Applications of Regenerative Medicine. This course will provide new knowledge on the requirements and extent of clinical regenerative medicine applications and the principles of stem cell translational research. It will provide rigorous training in the development of clinical applications using new regenerative medicine technologies. Professors from different departments and faculties will be invited to present on their research in clinical regenerative medicine.

EXMD 505 (3 credits, Winter 2020): Directed Readings in Regenerative Medicine. The primary aim of this course is to increase the understanding of research in the field of stem cell biology and its translation. Students will explore the literature pertaining to a proposed field of research in stem cell biology and/or clinical translation in collaboration with an approved faculty mentor.


Registrations are opened on uApply.

Where to study Regenerative Medicine?

Stem cells can be studied in health science specialties such as:

  • Medicine
  • Dentistry
  • Bioengineering
  • Biology
  • Neuroscience

Many researchers are investigating the biology of stem cells and their functionality.  Other scientists and clinicians are trying to innovate by using this knowledge and the different stem cells for use in various diseases through regenerative medicine and bioengineering.
