In addition to our MRes students there are over 60 postgraduate research students in the Institute.
We offer supervision in the following areas:
Each postgraduate student is attached to a research group and has a supervisor who is responsible for providing intellectual supervision. In addition, we have a formal system of laboratory supervision. A dedicated laboratory advisor is responsible for overseeing training in specific laboratory methodologies and provides general advice on laboratory research. More specific training is provided by the chosen group. Postgraduate students receive regular formal and informal reviews and give research presentations to peer groups.
