PhD Students


We place particular emphasis on the strength of our graduate student programme; training future research leaders is an important part of our mission. We look to recruit the best graduates from science and medicine to join the 80 students in our PhD programme. The LMS has an international reputation for excellence in a wide range of biological and clinical research; we are also developing a new initiative in computational biology. With our extensive range of facilities and support available and excellent career prospects, the LMS is an ideal location for any prospective PhD student.
