The School of Immunity and Infection employs a critical mass of academic staff engaged in research in immunology, inflammation, infection, stem cell biology and gene regulation. There is the opportunity for students to work with internationally recognised researchers with the possibility of supervision by combination of clinical and non clinical staff.
The School currently hosts approximately 75 graduate students, both clinical and non clinical, working in the highly interactive environment with access to state of the art facilities and key technologies. There is a critical mass of young scientists with over 60 post doctoral workers and a number of young investigators with independent fellowship awards.
The main degree is a PhD programme in Immunology and Infection undertaken over 4 years, which includes a taught element in the first year introducing generic research skills and training in key technologies. Staff in the School currently supervise PhD students many of which are funded by specific schemes including three MRC DTA schemes, a Wellcome Trust Combined Training scheme in Immunology and Infection, EU Marie Curie and a BBSRC scheme in Ageing.
