Regenerative medicine is about replacing, engineering or regenerating human cells, tissues or organs to restore or establish normal function. This can be achieved by stimulating the body's own repair mechanisms or, when the body cannot heal itself, by implanting new tissues and organs grown in the laboratory. This rapidly emerging, multidisciplinary field will have a significant impact on current and future health care.
Developed in collaboration with the Faculty of Medicine of Utrecht University, the special master’s track Regenerative Medicine and Technology (RMT) aims to educate the next generation of scientists and engineers. It combines the expertise of both universities, and includes courses on molecular cell biology, biomaterials, imaging technologies, computational modelling, bioreactor technology and translational research.
The program comprises a mixture of courses, an (international) internship and an in-depth research project. Students will have access to state-of-the-art laboratories at both universities. The program trains multidisciplinary researchers to innovate at the intersection of biomedical science, technology, and clinical applications.

The independent judgment by the NVAO strengthens higher education institutions in their quality culture. On the basis of the judgments of NVAO higher education programmes are recognized and students receive a legally recognized degree. In the Netherlands, NVAO assesses the internal quality assurance pursued by universities and the quality of the programmes they provide.
