Tissue engineering is the development and manipulation of laboratory-grown molecules, cells, tissues or organs to replace or support the function of defective or injured body parts. Realizing the vast potential of tissue engineering and other techniques, Chettinad Hospital & Research Institute has introduced an innovative M.Sc course in Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine (TERM). With the explosion in the field of TERM in the last decade, this course becomes an essential wing of study related to Medical Biology and nanomedicine. This course covers cell and tissue biology, stem cell technology, bionanotechnology, drug delivery, engineering methods and design, and recent trends in regenerative medicine. Through this two year training comprising of four semesters the students are extensively trained for tissue engineering: grafts and materials, regenerative medicine: scaffolds and factors that control endogenous tissue formation. Upon completing this course, the postgraduates understand the techniques utilized to design, fabricate, and functionally assess tissue engineering systems. These students can eventually apply their knowledge in the field of regeneration, repair and replacement of damaged and injured tissues.
Admission will be based on merit and personal interview.
A Bachelor's degree in any branch of Life Sciences/Technology (Botany, Zoology, Microbiology, Biochemistry, Biotechnology, Genetics, Agriculture or equivalent) or Health / Medical Sciences (Medicine, Dental, Nursing, Pharmacy, Allied Health Sciences, Veterinary or equivalent) from a recognized Indian or Foreign University. Students with B. Sc. degree in Physical and Chemical Sciences, are also eligible to apply if biology is taken as one of the subjects at +2 level.
