The College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine is an international leader in basic-to-clinical translational research.
Our approach ranges from molecules to man, from bench to bedside, and from process to population. Our interdisciplinary groups, centres and institutes bring together basic and clinical academic staff in broad, thematic research concentrations encompassing basic sciences, translational and clinical research. Research within the College explicitly links biomedicine and veterinary medicine, in promotion of the concept 'One Medicine'.
High calibre graduates are invited to apply for PhD Studentships for September 2016 entry across our world-leading research institutes and centres:
The deadline for the majority of PhD Studentships for 2016/17 entry is end of January 2016 - we usually start accepting applications for these funded PhDs in late autumn (November/December). Please visit each Research Centre website (listed above) and live PhD projects (listed below) for specific deadlines.
In our Interdisciplinary Research Centres, critical masses of clinical and basic scientists interact closely around their basic-to-translational goals, overcoming boundaries between "wet" and "dry" science and primary and secondary care, adding substantial value and offering the finest research training environments.
The excellence of these Centres is evidenced by prestigious external funding awards including: 4 Medical Research Council (MRC) Centres, 2 British Heart Foundation (BHF) Centres, a Cancer Research UK (CRUK) Centre, an Asthma UK (A-UK) Centre for Applied Research, a BBSRC Strategically funded institute (The Roslin Institute), an MRC University Unit (Human Genetics Unit) and a World Health Organisation (WHO) Collaborating Centre on Population Health Research and Training. In addition to these, the Wellcome Trust has just awarded funding for 4 year PhDs in Translational Neuroscience and Tissue Repair.
The University of Edinburgh is a leading postgraduate teaching and research centre, ranked 21st in the QS World Rankings 2015/16, 8th in Europe and 6th in the UK.
The College’s reputation as one of the world’s leading centres of medical and veterinary medical research has been reaffirmed by its UK REF 2014 results.
