Meddygaeth

The School of Medicine offers research degrees in the medical disciplines such as cancer, immunology, infection, immunity, neurosciences, mental health and population medicine.

The School of Medicine offers PhD, MD & MPhil in all medical disciplines, including Cancer & Genetics, Epidemiology, Infection & Immunity, Psychiatry & Neuroscience, and Experimental Medicine.


Research in the School of Medicine is focused on interdisciplinary themes, each of which spans the spectrum from basic science to clinical practice in either hospital or community settings. 

The underlying aim of the School is to ensure the optimum ‘translation’ of fundamental knowledge to patient benefit.

Our approach brings together people, knowledge and skills from a range of disciplines. This approach is the key to our research strength and achievements.

Each of the School’s Research Institutes embodies this philosophy.

PhD

Undertaking a PhD can be an exciting and rewarding opportunity to explore something in depth, amongst field-leading researchers with truly firstclass facilities. Candidates are required to make an original contribution to knowledge by conducting an independent research project.

MD

The research project will usually have a clinical focus, but other aspects of medical and health care provision may form the basis of the research topic. Applicants are usually required to hold an MBBCH degree or equivalent. Candidates are usually registered with the General Medical Council.

MPhil

MPhil is a stand-alone programme that allows candidates to undertake a research programme over one year. Sometimes, this can be an intermediate step before registering on a subsequent PhD programme; depending on how the project develops.

Skills developed

Students will benefit from gaining a range of transferable and professional skills during their research study. Depending on the project, these may include:

  • laboratory skills
  • statistical analysis
  • qualitative analysis
  • quantitative analysis
  • qualitative interviewing skills
  • focus group facilitation
  • presenting skills (scientists, the general public)
  • academic publication and grant writing.

Asesiad

Thesis (80,000 words for PhD, 60,000 words for MD, and 50,000 words for MPhil) and viva voce examination.

Our research is focused on interdisciplinary themes, each of which spans the spectrum from basic science to clinical practice in either hospital or community settings. Our key research themes include:

  • Cancer and Genetics
  • Infection and Immunity
  • Psychological Medicine and Clinical Neurosciences
  • Population Medicine.

Our underlying aim is to ensure the optimum ‘translation’ of fundamental knowledge to patient benefit.

Our approach brings together people, knowledge and skills from a range of disciplines. This approach is the key to our research strength and achievements.

Each of our research divisions embodies this philosophy.

Meysydd ymchwil

Canser a Geneteg

Bydd y rhaglen hon yn arwain at radd ymchwil mewn canser a/neu geneteg y gellid eu defnyddio mewn amrywiaeth o leoliadau academaidd, clinigol a diwydiannol.

Haint ac Imiwnedd

I gynnig gwybodaeth eang ac arbenigedd ym mhob agwedd ar brosesau clefyd imiwnolegol yn seiliedig ar y lefel cellog a moleciwlaidd, gyda chryfderau mewn imiwnedd cynhenid, imiwnoleg canser, bioleg celloedd-T a heintiau bacteriol a firaol.

Meddygaeth Boblogaeth

Mae rhaglenni ymchwil ôl-raddedig Is-adran Meddygaeth Boblogaeth yn canolbwyntio ar Atal ac ailgynllunio gwasanaethau gofal iechyd.

Meddygaeth Seicolegol a'r Niwrowyddorau Clinigol

Mae Yr Isadran Meddygaeth Seicolegol a’r Niwrowyddorau Clinigol yn un o’r Adrannau prifysgol mwyaf o ran seiciatreg yn y DU, yn darparu arweiniad mewn arfer clinigol, addysgu ac ymchwil arloesol, o ansawdd uchel ar draws nifer o feysydd o arfer seiciatrig.

Investigating peroxisome dysregulation in Alzheimer’s disease

In this project you will first determine how peroxisomes respond to the specific pathogenic proteins associated with AD in vivo.

Investigating the childhood neurodevelopmental origins of adult mental illness

This PhD utilises new data generated by a Wellcome Trust Collaborative Award between Cardiff and Bristol Universities to test hypotheses on why child NDDs show links with later adult mental illness.

Flexible vectors for immunotherapy against cancer and pathogens

This project aims to determine pathways that can drive the growth of particular types of NK and T cells that are optimised to provide better protection from disease. We will use cytomegalovirus and leukaemic cells as systems of analysis.

Enhancing immune stimulation for novel anti-cancer viral vaccine vectors

We will combine cutting-edge proteomics with molecular virology and immunology to determine how HCMV induces such strong responses, enabling us to generate optimised vaccine vectors.

School experiences in children at high genetic risk of mental health problems

This project will provide important insights into why children with a genomic disorder struggle in school.

The PhD programme will equip students for a career in academic research/teaching, NHS clinical laboratories, and pharmaceutical or biotechnology companies.

Applicants should possess a minimum of an upper second class Honours degree, Master's degree, or equivalent in a relevant subject. In some cases, a medical degree and/or relevant professional qualifications or experience are required.

Gofynion Iaith Saesneg

Fel arfer, mae disgwyl i ymgeiswyr nad yw’r Saesneg yn famiaith iddynt fodloni gofynion y Brifysgol (e.e. 6.5 IELTS). Gweler ein canllawiau am ein Gofynion Iaith Saesneg am ragor o fanylion.

Specifically funded PhD projects will be advertised with specific instructions on applications, otherwise prospective students are advised to contact potential supervisors.

Applications can be made at any time, but in addition there will be specific calls, which have associated instructions and deadlines.

A personal statement or covering letter should address how the applicant can contribute to the proposed project.

Proses gwneud cais

Decisions will be made on the basis of your written application and the references received, and potential students may be interviewed as part of the admissions process.
