White Rose BBSRC Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) in Mechanistic Biology

Who we are

We are the White Rose BBSRC Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) in Mechanistic Biology, bringing together the research of the world-class molecular and cellular bioscience centres at the White Rose universities of Leeds, Sheffield and York. The collaboration has attracted three major investments from the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) which, together with additional investment from the partner universities, is currently supporting 135 PhD studentships.

Our mission is to train excellent bio-scientists who understand how living systems work and can innovate to address global challenges, such as, the impact of climate change, a healthier old age, and sustainable food production, land use and energy production.
