The Clore Laboratory is an internationally recognised centre for integrated research into diabetes, obesity and metabolic diseases.
Established in 1986, it currently has a staff 15 of whom five are postdoctoral research scientists. Currently, there are three DPhil students. Students benefit from the holistic nature of the research, which ranges from investigations at the molecular and cellular level through to whole-body physiology, including the role of dietary interaction with the genetic background in producing disease.
The Clore Laboratory was purpose-built for metabolic research and has excellent facilities for molecular and cell biology, as well as biochemistry, physiology and pharmacology. The range of scientific disciplines among the researchers provides an excellent training ground in research methodologies.
In circumstances where it is not possible for students to undertake residency in Buckingham but have full-time access to laboratory facilities, it may be possible to register for an MPhil/DPhil degree, subject to the suitability of the proposed research programme and the availability of local supervision.
The Clore Laboratory is situated in the attractive and rural environment of Buckingham, at the heart of the University campus.
This is a three-year research programme, the student being initially admitted to an MPhil/DPhil track. Progress from MPhil to DPhil registration is subject to assessment after 18 months. The research programme will be a substantial piece of independent work and will have made an original and significant contribution to knowledge. Examination is by thesis submission and external viva voce .
This is a two-year research project with submission of a thesis and viva voce (oral) examination. The research will not have the same depth as a DPhil but will still be an original piece of work.
Supervision of postgraduate students is under the control of the Director. On a day-to-day basis students will be supervised in the laboratory by an experienced researcher.
Students will normally be expected to possess a good first degree (usually first class or second class honours) or overseas equivalent in Biochemistry, Biotechnology, Pharmacology, Biology or related subjects.
