Course Summary

Our School of Biosciences and Medicine is home to a first-class research community and has well-established connections with industry and clinical practice. Research within the School fully embraces the ‘bench to bedside’ concept, ranging from molecular and computational studies through to clinical trials. We have a strong interdisciplinary set of research sections and centres which interact with each other, other parts of the University, and with external collaborators. Our research is truly international, with Surrey academics and students coming from around the globe. Many ongoing research projects involve active collaborations with international researchers and institutions. The University is home to a Doctoral College and a vibrant researcher development programme that supports postgraduate research students and other research trainees. We also have careers advisers dedicated to the support of postgraduate research students and research trainees. Our academics are engaged in world-leading discovery and applied research to improve human and animal health, and are frequently published in top academic journals such as Nature, Lancet, and the British Medical Journal. The research in bioscience and medicine is an important part of our Faculty’s interdisciplinary programme of ‘One Health’. As such, our researchers are part of a strong collaborative and interdisciplinary group that includes links to Surrey Health Partners. We’re also regularly featured in the media as experts in the field. As a postgraduate research student you will have at least two supervisors. The primary role of the supervisors is to provide you with academic guidance and tuition throughout your project. Supervisors will have scientific expertise relevant to your research project and help you develop skills in experimental design, conduct and analysis. Supervisors will also be able to provide some level of pastoral support and advice, or be able to refer you to more specialist support where necessary.
