University of Sussex


The research areas and research environment at BSMS provides postgraduate students with potential for interdisciplinary interactions. Projects are available where supervisors with a background in fundamental science are working together with clinicians to provide an exciting and productive environment. In addition, some projects are enhanced by the input of ethics research into research on human genetics or disease. Postgraduate students are often supervised by both BSMS Faculty and Faculty from the Universities of Sussex or Brighton as well as clinicians from the NHS, providing students with a rich research experience. Students are able to take advantage of skills training courses at both universities, as well as use the facilities and equipment provided in both universities and in NHS research laboratories. There are also strong links with neighbouring research centres such as the Blond McIndoe Research Foundation, East Grinstead, which specializes in research into tissue regeneration.
