Postgraduate research study at Biomedical Science

PhD opportunities

In the last Research Excellence Framework, we were UK number one for medical research excellence and in the top five for biological research excellence. Students come from all over the world to complete their PhD in one of our world-class research centres, studying subjects including anatomy and physiology, animal models of human disease, stem cells and regenerative medicine.

Many of our key publications are based on our PhD students' research. On these webpages you can find out about current PhD opportunities in Biomedical Science, how to get in touch if you have your own idea for a project, and what funding opportunities are available to you.
