WHITE ROSE DOCTORAL TRAINING PARTNERSHIP MECHANISTIC BIOLOGY AND ITS STRATEGIC APPLICATION
This Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) brings together the research of the world-class molecular and cellular bioscience centres at the White Rose universities of Leeds, Sheffield and York. The collaboration attracted an initial £5.7 million investment from the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) which, together with additional investment from the partner universities, supported 83 PhD studentships over the last three years.
This successful collaborative partnership will continue to support a further 164 PhD studentships over the next 5 years following an additional £11 million investment from BBSRC together with ongoing commitments from the White Rose universities.
Our 4-year fully funded PhD programme in Mechanistic Biology offers projects aligned with the BBSRC strategic priorities in Food Security, Bioenergy and Industrial Technology and World Class Bioscience.Tell me more
