Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Regenerative Medicine

Our CDT is a programme hosted across three universities: Loughborough, Keele and Nottingham, each bringing their own, complementary expertise. Engaging with over 40 academic staff and their clinical and industrial partners, we aim to equip postgraduate researchers with the tools and skills needed to translate the potential of cell or tissue-based therapies from bench to bedside.
