Fully funded Wellcome Trust PhD Studentships in Tissue Repair

The prestigious Wellcome Trust four-year PhD Programme in Tissue Repair provides cutting edge, cross-disciplinary PhD training which builds on the breath of world-class biomedical research performed at the University of Edinburgh's College for Medicine & Veterinary Medicine. The programme is run by the University of Edinburgh and funded by the Wellcome Trust. Details can be found on our website.

Applications to join the Tissue Repair programme in September 2019 have now closed.

The next generation of Tissue Repair experts

Our programme aims to train the next generation of scientific leaders in tissue repair. Successful advancement of tissue repair relies on combining expertise from basic to translational research in areas of regenerative medicine, stem cell biology, neurology, reproductive health, inflammation and cardiovascular science. Such a cross-disciplinary approach will underpin the design of novel cell- and drug-based therapies that stimulate repair of tissues damaged due to disease, trauma or congenital conditions.

Comprehensive training programme

The Tissue Repair PhD Programme is a four-year training programme, following the format of six months/three years/six months. During the first six months you will broaden your knowledge of tissue repair through discussion groups and seminars, core skills training and two 12-week laboratory rotations in affiliated Research Centres.

Following these first six months you will choose the topic of your PhD research project and select your primary- and secondary PhD supervisor. To ensure a comprehensive training you will attend lab meetings and seminars by internal and invited speakers throughout the programme. During the last six months of the programme you will focus on writing your thesis and preparing for your final examination.

Research training at world-class centres

The programme involves 45 Principal Investigators based at five affiliated Research Centres across Edinburgh Medical School, all located at the Little France Campus.

Centre for Discovery Brain Sciences (CDBS)
MRC Centre for Inflammation Research (CIR)
MRC Centre for Reproductive Health (CRH)
MRC Centre for Regenerative Medicine (CRM)
University/BHF Centre for Cardiovascular Science (CVS)
