Course summary

As a Biomaterials PhD student, you will benefit from: a supervisory team comprising 2-3 members of academic staff. Depending on your research specialism you may also have an additional external supervisor from another school, research institution, or industry; desk space and access to a desktop PC, either in one of the postgraduate offices on the sixth floor of the award-winning Cockcroft Building; access to a range of electronic resources via the university’s Online Library, as well as to the physical book and journal collections housed within the Aldrich Library and other campus libraries; access to state-of-the-art research facilities on the Moulsecoomb site, including geochemical and geotechnical laboratories, microscopy laboratories (optical and scanning electron microscopes), specialist microbial and water quality laboratories.

We conduct research within the broad areas of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, Biological Sciences, Biomedical Sciences and Chemistry. We are open to enquiries relating to any of these wider fields, but also have particular strengths in research in the fields of biomaterials, chemistry, chronic disease, ecology and conservation, pediatrics, sensory neuroscience, microbiology, biochemistry, regenerative medicine, ageing, diabetes, drug delivery, drug stability, and cancer.

Our diverse research provides an excellent environment to tackle global problems using multidisciplinary research approaches. A thriving postgraduate community of over 30 PhD students is supervised by subject specialists from across the life and physical sciences. Research is supported by postdoctoral researchers, visiting fellows and technical staff.
