Ph.D Programme at REMEDI

Ph.D Programme (Structured Ph.D in Regenerative Medicine)

Over 24 Ph.D students have graduated from REMEDI to date. Ph.D students who have done research and training have gone on to careers in academic research (in Ireland and the U.S), industrial research and development, management of clinical trials as well as clinical practice.

In keeping with international best practice, all current Ph.D students at REMEDI are enrolled in the formal structured Graduate Research Education Programmes at NUI Galway. REMEDI is also participating in a number of multicentre interdisciplinary graduate programmes with other institutes in Ireland.

REMEDI researchers have established expertise in gene therapy, stem cell biology, biomaterial science, immunology and medical device technologies, all essential elements of minimally invasive approaches to regenerative medicine. Research programmes are in place to develop novel therapies for cardiovascular, athritis/orthopaedic and neural applications towards translational medicine in the clinic.
