Regenerative Medicine deals with the process of restoring, repairing and improving normal functions of damaged tissues and organs, and engineering new tissues and organs to extend and improve quality of life. In Precision Medicine, diagnostic testing and prevention strategies of diseases are applied to clinics, considering genetic and environmental variability, among other factors.

Graduates in Bioengineering: Regenerative and Precision Medicine combine aspects of genomics, genetics, nanomedicine, diagnosis, data science and information science to the development of new therapies, devices and systems to improve health care and, therefore, promote the development of society.


• Learning of fundamental concepts of Molecular and Cellular Biology, including Stem Cells and Genomics
• Learning of fundamental concepts of Computational Biology and Bioinformatics
• Learning of human cell bioengineering processes, including the ones focused on stem cells
• Acquisition of biomaterial concepts and biofabrication techniques for Tissue and Organ Engineering
• Identification of the main strategies used by Molecular, Gene and Cell Therapies for Regenerative and Precision
• Acquisition of skills to illustrate with specific examples the main strategies of Regenerative and Precision
• Acquisition of knowledge in the field of regulation in Regenerative and Precision Medicine
• Development of Entrepreneurship Skills in Bioengineering for Regenerative and Precision Medicine
• Identification of the Social and Economic Impact of Regenerative and Precision Medicine and their Ethical

Career prospects 
As a Técnico MSc graduate in Bioengineering: Regenerative and Precision Medicine, you are prepared to pursue a research career in industry or academia, or work in healthcare research institutions and hospitals, as well as in the pharmaceutical and biotechnological sectors. You may also pursue a career in emerging areas of Bioengineering such as the development of: • innovative and customized clinical applications, • bioprocesses and advanced products for molecular, cell and tissue engineering-based therapies; • pharmacological diagnosis and research that may respond to diseases for which there are not currently effective approaches and therapeutics. Graduates of this area have held positions in areas such as consultancy, leadership and management as well as vocational training and teaching.
