These themes span the translational research spectrum, from basic biological research through to clinical application.

We are committed to training the next generation of scientists in biological and clinical sciences through our graduate programme at the University of Oxford. Our PhD Scholars Programme is open to outstanding candidates of any nationality. It provides fully-funded awards for students wishing to undertake a 4 year DPhil in Medical Sciences.

Further details on the application process and the wide range of projects are available on the RDM website. Individual supervisors can also be contacted by email about their projects.
