Research Projects & Supervision
MBPhD students undertake their projects within the School of Life and Medical Sciences (aka SLMS). In the first instance, the student expresses an interest in a particular field. The MBPhD programme tutors will then guide the student to appropriate potential supervisors. The student looks up websites and papers, goes to see the prospective supervisor, assesses the position, and decides whether or not to proceed.
For examples of the of the type of research projects within the School of Life and Medical Sciences which may be available, use the following institute links:
- Division of Biosciences
- Cancer Institute
- Institute of Cardiovascular Science
- Institute of Child Health
- The Ear Institute
- Eastman Dental Institute
- Institute for Global Health
- Division of Infection and Immunity
- Division of Medicine
- Institute of Neurology
- Institute of Ophthalmology
- Institute of Epidemiology & Health Care
- Division of Surgical and Interventional Science
- Wolfson Institute for Biomedical Research
- Institute for Women's Health

- visit the Institutional Research Information System (IRIS). This is the research portal for UCL where you can learn more about researchers' activities, research groups, research centres and interdisciplinary networks across the whole of UCL.
Each student has a Supervisory Panel consisting of one Principal and one Subsidiary Supervisors. These supervisors will be members of staff of UCL or members of staff of an institution with an approved agreement with UCL (e.g.g The Francis Crick Institute). All supervisors must be approved by their Faculty Graduate Tutor before they undertake supervision of research students
The Supervisory Panel may also include other persons, for instance members of collaborating bodies, e.g. persons with special expertise necessary for the research. The Supervisory Panel will meet as necessary and be involved at key milestones in the research degree (for example in the MPhil to PhD transfer process, and in the appointment of examiners).
