Cell and Developmental Biology PhDs

The Department of Cell and Developmental Biology has a very active MPhil/PhD programme. We currently have sixty-one research students from all over the world including the UK, Europe, America, Thailand, Costa Rica and China.  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.).

  • Cell and Developmental Biology PhD Programme: 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.
  • UCL-Birkbeck MRC PhD programme
  • Developmental and Stem Cell Biology PhD Programme: available for three or four years - see headings below for further information on September 2018 entry.  Application deadline: Tuesday 2 January 2018.  Applications from self-funded candidates are welcome.  Please note that there is no funding attached to this programme, but you may apply for a UCL Scholarship. Interviews will be held in January/February 2018.
