King's College London, University of London
This course explores integrated laboratory-to-bedside research programmes that improve the understanding of human cardiovascular disease and its treatment; it uses a multidisciplinary integrative approach using both in vitro and in vivo models and methods, with a strong focus on translational research and the clinical/basic science interface. The overall research strategy is to pursue laboratory-to-bedside research programmes addressing fundamental molecular, cellular, physiological and pathological mechanisms underlying cardiovascular disease both experimentally and in patients and to undertake high-quality research training of non-clinicians and clinician scientists side by side.
Good Honours degree in science (2.1 or above) or an overseas equivalent; a 2.2 Honours degree may be considered only where applicants also offer a Master's degree with merit or above.
Studentships funded by external funding agencies such as the British Heart Foundation (BHF), the Wellcome Trust or research councils (eg MRC) are usually advertised in New Scientist/Nature when available; the 4-year PhD programme funded by the BHF, with an annual intake of 4 students, is advertised annually in Nature; the 1st year of this studentship is composed of an MRes in Cardiovascular Sciences; the division has also commenced an interdisciplinary PhD scheme as part of the BHF Centre of Research Excellence; these highly competitive studentships provide a stipend and the payment of tuition fees at the home/EU rate, for qualifying students; from time to time, divisional investigators may be in a position to take on additional students.
