The School of Medicine, Dentistry and Biomedical Sciences at Queen’s University Belfast trains numerous PhD students in the areas of Cancer Research, Experimental Medicine, Public Health and Medical Education. Its diverse postgraduate student population comprises both basic and clinical scientists from across the globe engaged in wide-ranging research projects spanning the breadth of the School’s research portfolio from bioinformatics through molecular and cell biology to clinical trials and medical education. Students in the School benefit from world-class infrastructure and academic faculty together with provision of a tailored training programme, delivered in conjunction with the Graduate School, comprising both discipline-specific and generic skills, to effectively promote their education, professional development and career progression.
The School is pleased to offer a broad portfolio of PhD studentship projects for 2021/22 fully-funded by the Northern Ireland Department for the Economy in its 4 main research centres:
Patrick G Johnston Centre for Cancer Research specialises in integrating academic discovery, industrial/commercial enterprise and innovative health care practice to promote effective delivery of precision cancer medicine and to improve patient health and outcomes. The Centre comprises established multi-disciplinary teams focusing on cancers of gastrointestinal, prostate, breast and ovarian origin, with specific expertise in biomarker discovery and bioinformatics, biological investigation and therapeutic development, and early-phase clinical trials.
Wellcome Wolfson Institute for Experimental Medicine drives scientific breakthroughs in the mechanisms of disease, translated to innovative therapeutics to improve patient outcomes, making important impacts against conditions such as diabetes, infection, and diseases of the eye and cardiovascular and respiratory systems. The Institute has a core emphasis on immunology, molecular cell biology and patient-based investigations, and comprises three main research themes focussed on Immunology and Microbes, Respiratory Medicine, and Vision and Vascular Medicine.
Centre for Public Health overall mission is to improve health and reduce inequalities, prevent and manage chronic disease and disability more effectively, and to optimise delivery of health and social care. The Centre comprises four main research themes focussed on Epidemiology and Public Health, Nutrition and Public Health, and Health Services and Global Health.
Centre for Medical Education encompasses a range of learning environments and spans the continuum of medical education, using a range of qualitative and quantitative methods. Projects are linked by an underlying commitment to improve patient care through education. Current research interests include GP pedagogy, technology-enhanced learning, identity, critical research, and diversity and inclusion.
