EPSRC CDT in Advanced Biomedical Materials

Could your research have a real impact on the future?

The EPSRC Advanced Biomedical Materials (ABM) Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) is co-located at Manchester and Sheffield Universities. It is a PhD Programme of Training for those who want to change people’s lives. Right now, our teams are working on real world challenges including treating complex wounds, tackling cancer challenges, and improving the experiences of dysphagia patients. We’re also conducting research into bone tissue engineering, nanomaterials, stem cells and biosensors, all of which are supported by a £235 million investment in our Royce hubs within each host institution, ensuring that we’ve got start-of the-art-facilities matched with world class expertise to meet these global challenges. And that’s just a glimpse at what we do!

Now, we’re looking for new applicants. We want people with ideas, people who are used to overcoming challenges, those who are passionate about changing the world for the better.
