The Department of Cell and Developmental Biology has a very active MPhil/PhD programme with a range of funding opportunities. We currently have seventy-one research students from all over the world including the UK, Europe, America, Singapore, China, Thailand and Israel. Students are regularly monitored by a small committee appointed among experts in the field, which stimulates interactions between laboratories, and excellent courses are offered on generic research and other skills (speaking, writing, imaging, etc.).
Four year PhD studentships include rotations in different laboratories during the first year - see Wellcome Trust and BBSRC studentship details below.
PhD programmes in Cell and Developmental Biology are available for three years in a single laboratory (or five years part-time) - see 'Applicants with independent funding' section below. There is currently no Departmental funding available for these, but you may apply for a UCL Scholarship.
