College of Medicine & Veterinary Medicine

PhD studentships for 2014

The College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine is one of the oldest centres of its kind in the United Kingdom, yet one of the most dynamic and progressive.

It has a long-held international reputation for excellence in medical and veterinary medical research and teaching. Its approach ranges from molecules to man, from bench to bedside, from process to population, and from 'lab to labrador'. Research within the College explicitly links biomedicine and veterinary medicine, in promotion of the concept 'One Medicine'.
