Bioengineering - MRes

Bioengineering has contributed to revolutionary, sometimes life-saving, innovations – from artificial organs and replacement hips and knees, to pacemakers, dialysis machines, ultrasound and other medical imaging techniques. A fascinating, rapidly-evolving discipline, it is leading the development of stem cell therapies, regenerative medicine, and novel biopharmaceuticals, including engineered organisms for agricultural, chemical or pharmaceutical manufacturing. You will conduct in-depth research supervised by leading experts at the forefront of bio and medical engineering and develop strong skills in research design, experimentation and analysis, both wet and dry, to prepare you for research-orientated careers.

Keele Postgraduate Association

Keele University is one of a handful of universities in the UK to have a dedicated students' union for postgraduate students. A fully registered charity, Keele Postgraduate Association serves as a focal point for the social life and welfare needs of all postgraduate students during their time at Keele.

KPA interior

Hugely popular, the KPA Clubhouse (near Horwood Hall) provides a dedicated postgraduate social space and bar on campus, where you can grab a bite to eat and drink, sit quietly and read a book, or switch off from academic life at one of the many regular events organised throughout the year. The KPA also helps to host a variety of conferences, as well as other academic and career sessions, to give you and your fellow postgraduates the opportunities to come together to discuss your research, and develop your skills and networks.
