Global Stem Cells Group will launch two new versions of its “Diplomat in Cell Therapy and Tissue Engineering” post-graduate program. The program will be offered in Chile in 2016
MIAMI (PRWEB) SEPTEMBER 29, 2015
Stem Cell Training, Inc., a division of the Global Stem Cells Group, has announced plans to launch two new editions of the post-graduate diploma program, “Diplomat in Cell Therapy and Tissue Engineering.” The first of its kind worldwide, the program is designed for physicians and qualified practitioners to bring stem cell therapies into the doctor’s office to treat patients.
The program focuses on advances in cell biology that emerged in the late 20th and early 21st centuries to give rise to stem cell therapies—a new form of medical treatment in which cells and tissues are used as healing elements, not only to supplement or replace deficient cells, but to induce regeneration and restoration of a lost biological order during the development of a disease or injury.
According to Global Stem Cells Group CEO Benito Novas, cell therapy is becoming the foundation of future medicine. For that reason, making stem cell sciences and treatment courses available to physicians and qualified medical practitioners is fundamental to the future of medicine. “Diplomat in Cell Therapy and Tissue Engineering” offers professionals invaluable lessons in the new art of healing, as well as the scientific and practical methodologies concerning this new discipline.
The aim of this postgraduate course is to train high-achieving, academic level professionals in cell therapy and tissue engineering to use in different areas of medicine and dentistry.
Course topics include:
- Somatic cell therapy and tissue engineering and associated bioethical issues.
- Cell Structure and functions, cell and tissue growth, cell differentiation and genetic and epigenetic regulation.
- Interaction of cells with other cells and extracellular matrix, humeral microenvironment.
- Development of cell interactions during embryogenesis, tissue regeneration, tissue repair and cancer.
- Immunology: Humeral and cellular immunity, innate and acquired immunity, interactions, effector function, immune tolerance, trophic and reconstructive function.
- Biology of embryo development, and normal and pathological tissue repair: overview of embryonic and fetal post-natal development, genetic and epigenetic factors that influence growth, embryonic fetal and postnatal development, maintenance and repair process of cells, tissue and organs, and genetic and epigenetic factors that interact and influence these processes.
- Identification of certain cellular therapies that repair or correct defects.
- Method of production, processing and application of biological drugs for Cell Therapy and Tissue Engineering.
- Sources of the cells used in cell therapy. Enforcement of cell techniques. Complex manipulation processes, GMP Standards. Cell processing laboratories. The Biosafety and quality of cellular products: Identity, Purity, Power, Security.
- Cell administration. Implant techniques. Evaluating the results of cell therapy.
- Layout of clinical trials.
Educational strategies will be taught in theory and in practical hands-on classes, during which students can raise questions and work on problem solving. Practical work will be first carried out on animals; laboratory practices will be taught, followed by demonstration of therapies on humans.
Students will take a written exam on the last day; A score of 7 or better out of 10 is required to pass. Evaluations will be complemented with the development of a thesis, to be graded as pass or fail and must be supported with an oral examination.
