What is it like to be a student on our MRC Physical Biology of Stem Cells PhD programme?

last modified Feb 02, 2017 11:58 AM

Given the unique nature of our MRC Physical Biology of Stem Cells PhD studentships, we asked two of our current PhD students about their Physical Biology of Stem Cells journey, to give us an insight into how these studentships work in context.  Fiona Hamey (who began her studentship with us in 2014), and Sam Watcham (who started in October 2016) talk about their experience on the programme so far... check out our interview with Fiona Hamey and Sam Watcham to see what they had to say...

Applications are still being accepted for the October 2017 intake of this programme. Application deadline: Monday 6th February 9am UK time.  

These MRC Physical Biology of Stem Cells studentships (which run in parallel with our Wellcome Trust 4-Yr (1+3) Programme in Stem Cell Biology & Medicine), are integral to the future of biology, as more and more research groups recognise the power of working with physical, mathematical or computer science experts.

The Medical Research Council kindly provide the funding for this specialist 4-Year (1+3) PhD Programme, focusing on 'The Physical Biology of Stem Cells'. Applications are considered once each year (application open Nov - Feb) and the Programme is targeted specifically to applicants with a Physical SciencesMathematical or Computational Sciences background, who are interested in applying their training to aspects of stem cell biology. Click here for further information about this studentship.
