Tissue Repair

We are looking to recruit outstanding postgraduate candidates to join our prestigious Wellcome Trust four-year PhD Programme in Tissue Repair. This programme provides cutting edge, cross-disciplinary PhD training which builds on the breath of world-class biomedical research performed at the University of Edinburgh's College for Medicine & Veterinary Medicine. The programme is run by the University of Edinburgh and funded by the Wellcome Trust. Our programme aims to train the next generation of scientific leaders in tissue repair. Successful advancement of tissue repair relies on combining expertise from basic to translational research in areas of regenerative medicine, stem cell biology, neurology, reproductive health, inflammation and cardiovascular science. Such a cross-disciplinary approach will underpin the design of novel cell-and drug-based therapies that stimulate repair of tissues damaged due to disease, trauma or congenital conditions. Up to seven Tissue Repair PhD studentships are available in September 2019 for promising postgraduate candidates with a strong interest in tissue repair. Studentships include a stipend, tuition fees (at the UK/EU rate) and contributions towards research costs for their rotation and PhD projects. Studentships also provide funds for travel and training, including related to transferable skills and professional development.
