This is an Industrial CASE Award Studentship with co-supervision from the MRC Mitochondrial Biology Unit, Cambridge University and an industrial partner (GSK). The project will make use of expertise within both the MBU and GSK’s Mechanistic Safety and Disposition Department to develop fundamental understanding of mitochondrial transport mechanisms and their importance in disease and drug toxicity.
The student will spend a minimum of 3 months working at the premises of GSK during their 4-year project, giving them the opportunity to experience both an excellent academic laboratory and an industrial research environment during their studies.
Start date: January 2018
