There are no BHF CRM studentships awarded for the 2017-2021 grant.

BHF Oxbridge Centre of Regenerative Medicine awarded five 4-year PhD studentships (2014-2018). The studentships were collaborative with joint supervision between two sites and resources allocated for regular meetings.

Additionally, each student was expected to visit their co-supervisor's group to learn a new technique or a skill that will support their thesis project, as well as to act as a catalyst for further collaborative projects between the two research groups.

Please follow the links below to each student's research profile.
