Stem cells have the potential to change the way medicine is practiced. For the past 15 years, there have been stunning advances in the understanding of stem cells and their possible use in disease conditions. One of the areas where stem cell research has progressed remarkably is in the field of heart disease. Heart disease, as we all know, is one of the major killers in the world today and incidences, particularly in Asia, are rising every day. This course will help you enter the exciting world of stem cells and learn how it is impacting the management of cardiac disease. It will recount what is already known, analyse what the results mean and equip you with the information you need to make sense of this rapidly changing field.

The course assumes knowledge of high school biology but we think that this is not essential to the understanding the material. The course in interactive, so you will be able to ask questions and catch up if you find some concepts a little challenging at first.

The course will be of 8 weeks duration and will be interactive and FUN.
