Jointly funded by UOB and Procter & Gamble, this project complements an ongoing BBSRC-funded project on behavioural, modelling and brain imaging studies of aging touch involving the Universities of Birmingham, Nottingham and Procter & Gamble. The bursary is available to UK and EU students only and covers tuition fees and an annual maintenance grant in line with the RCUK rate.
