Course Summary

Programme overview

The School of Physiology, Pharmacology and Neuroscience has an international reputation for research excellence in neuroscience, cell biology and signaling, and cardiovascular biology. The school is highly committed to training the next generation of scientists from both the UK and overseas, taking great pride in the standard of our postgraduate provision.

New students enter an exciting research environment in which we support and challenge our postgraduates to excel. All postgraduates receive extensive research and transferable skills training.

The school is well supported by programme and project grants, particularly from the Medical Research Council, BBSRC, Wellcome Trust, Cancer Research UK and British Heart Foundation. This has enabled the school to provide a vibrant environment for research; we have more than 100 PhD students at various stages in their research projects.

Careers

Most of our postgraduate students become highly productive researchers through the course of their studies, publishing in leading peer-reviewed biomedical journals. Most go on to post-doctoral research in academia and industry, both in the UK and abroad. Other students use the skills gained during their study to enter postgraduate-level employment.

The school is also committed to promoting the advancement of women in science and has received a Silver Athena SWAN award for our work in this area.
