BBSRC London Interdisciplinary Biosciences PhD Consortium

Biosciences Students & ResearchBackground

University College London, King's College London, Royal Veterinary College, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, Birkbeck College and the UCL School of Pharmacy, have partnered to develop a major new interdisciplinary PhD programme in bioscience and bioengineering. The programme will provide students with the skills and confidence necessary to combine experimental and theoretical approaches to tackle biological problems and to re-engineer living systems. The programme is suitable for students with biological or physical/computational/engineering sciences backgrounds.

Course Structure

During the first year of the programme training is provided in modeling, quantitative and systems approaches to biological research through taught lectures, seminars and innovative e-learning resources. Students also gain experience in experimental and theoretical research approaches by undertaking two interdisciplinary research projects in different laboratories that involve acquisition of different skill sets. The programme additionally includes summer schools, seminars and transferable professional skills training.

Students are able to select their PhD from a wide-range of projects that employ interdisciplinary approaches, many of which are also cross institutional. Topics include:

  • molecular dynamics and structural biology
  • bioengineering of living systems
  • developmental biology
  • pathogen biology and infection
  • dynamic cell imaging

The programme supervisors are carrying out cutting-edge interdisciplinary research, and students will have access to world-class research facilities.
