The William Harvey Research Institute is currently the UK’s largest academic pharmacological research institute and has a long history of training talented scientists for careers in translational research.
During the year students will obtain a comprehensive training in in vivo techniques, key laboratory skills, research governance, the application of state-of-the-art imaging techniques and generic transferable skills followed by an opportunity to conduct an in-vivo based research project. The highest ranking students may be offered the opportunity to build upon their MRes studies and conduct a fully-funded 3 year PhD within the WHRI with their chosen supervisor.
All students will be based in the attractive Charterhouse Square campus in the City of London with access to exceptional scientific and recreational facilities.
This training will be an invaluable foundation for individuals wishing to pursue a career in industry or academic research, particularly in the areas of inflammation science, cardiovascular research or cell signaling.
