Path to career success

You can now draw a more purposeful connection between your coursework and your future career.

What is Regenerative Bioscience?

Regenerative bioscience is a field of study that aims to develop new ways to replace, repair, or regenerate human and animal cells, tissues, or organs from a pathologic or diseased condition. In cases of severe injury or disease the innate healing and defense mechanisms of the body are limited and there are no effective treatments. Therefore, the goal of regenerative bioscience is to find a way to cure previously untreatable injuries and diseases.

What will I learn?

We are enormously proud to be the first University in the country to offer an undergraduate degree in Regenerative Bioscience. As a Regenerative Bioscience major, you will be working with nationally recognized scientists with diverse human and animal expertise. You will be taught the most current and emerging concepts in regenerative bioscience. From basic to translational science, to how these paradigms are being used to treat complex diseases and injuries. You will gain an in-depth understanding of cell therapy and cell manufacturing approaches, including using gene editing tools to alter disease progression. You will learn about tissue engineering and bioengineering of novel therapies, and the development of medical devices and novel diagnostics. As part of the program, you will become intimately familiar with the current state of the regenerative bioscience industry. We will also give you a “front door opportunity” to participate in experiential-learning through hands-on research and enrollment in the RBC laboratory experience. 

A world of opportunity awaits.

Mentorship and Compassion: My Year with Emma

“When I started research, my graduate student mentor Emma Jones played a huge role in helping me quickly adapt to a fast-paced environment. She enthusiastically welcomed questions from myself and other undergraduate students, making it easier to understand exactly how each test contributed to the overall project.

I worked directly with Emma on a few portions of the swine model, including Gait Mat Tracking, post-operative care, and gait training. I was constantly learning from her attention to organization and meticulousness in gathering accurate data.  Beyond data collection, I could tell that she cared for the pigs we got to work with day in and day out. From creating fun names, to showing us the personalities of the animals involved in research, it is obvious that Emma has great compassion for all animals. 

Emma played a significant role in my decision to pursue graduate school and continue with scientific research after I graduate this spring.”
