The Medical Research Foundation, the charitable foundation of the MRC, has announced their funding of the only national PhD Training Programme in Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) in the UK.


The Programme will initially support 18 fully funded, multidisciplinary PhD studentships to be hosted across the UK, including UCL. It will also provide a number of training and network-building activities and events including on-line training resources, summer residential training weeks, annual AMR conferences and tailored meetings responsive to developments and opportunities relevant to the AMR field. These training and network-building activities will reach a further 150 UK PhD students training in AMR-related research.

Note: the call for applications does not yet appear to be open; information will be made available as it is released.
