A vibrant community

Based across our four partner countries – Bangladesh, India, Malaysia and Pakistan – RESPIRE PhD students form a vibrant global respiratory community of early career researchers.

Each PhD student is undertaking a unique project in the field of global respiratory health, co-supervised by leading researchers at the University of Edinburgh and partner institutions.

Getting acquainted

The induction week provides a great opportunity for our PhD students to meet each other and also make useful introductions with Edinburgh-based RESPIRE staff.

During their week, the group will find out more about RESPIRE and life as a PhD student, as well as more general information about studying at the University of Edinburgh and living in the UK – hearing first hand from previous international students.
