MRC GW4 BioMed Doctoral Training Partnership

The Medical Research Council (MRC) GW4 BioMed DTP brings together the Universities of Bath, Bristol, Cardiff (lead) and Exeter to develop the next generation of medical researchers.

Medical Research Council

Students will have access to the combined research strengths, training expertise and resources of the four research-intensive universities, with opportunities to participate in interdisciplinarity and 'team science'.

Many of the PhD projects supported by the DTP will be co-supervised across at least two of the partner universities, allowing students to join existing and emerging research partnerships.

Research themes

PhD projects are aligned with one of the three strategic research themes that characterise the GW4 BioMed DTP:

  • Infection
  • Immunity and Repair
  • Neuroscience and Mental Health
  • Population Health.

The portfolio of PhD projects available also reflects the collective strengths of the DTP: quantitative skills (including mathematical modelling), using data for discovery, in vivo skills, and interdisciplinary training and approaches, including imaging (physics, engineering), chemistry and health economics.
