The University of Edinburgh, Centre for Regenerative Medicine PhD Opportunities

About Us

The MRC Centre for Regenerative Medicine (CRM) is a world leading research centre based at the University of Edinburgh. Scientists and clinicians at CRM study stem cells, disease and tissue repair to advance human health.

CRM is housed within the Scottish Centre for Regenerative Medicine (SCRM) building, on the Edinburgh Bioquarter site shared by the Royal Infirmary Hospital and the University's Clinical Research facilities. With new state-of-the-art facilities and a 230+ team of scientists and clinicians, CRM is positioned uniquely to translate scientific knowledge to industry and the clinic. Research at CRM is aimed at developing new treatments for major diseases including cancer, heart disease, liver failure, diabetes, and degenerative diseases such as multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's.

We also train the next generation of basic and clinical scientists and act as a centre for public engagement and source of advice for policy makers.
