Course summary

Our 4 Year Dual award PhD in Integrative Biomedical Sciences programme will equip students with the distinct skills required to bridge the knowledge gap between the design, execution and interpretation of fundamental research and the challenges of translating this knowledge in humans. The programme focuses on training students to align cutting-edge experimental animal modelling, cellular, regenerative, computational, genetic technologies and analytical tools with comprehensive knowledge of the translational environment.

By 'Training to Translate', this programme draws on unique research strengths in biomedical sciences from The University of Edinburgh and Zhejiang University. As evidenced by our recent award of the 2018 Education Institutional Partnership of the Year at the British Business Awards, we have established an international research institute that builds on the existing strengths of our institutions and aims to foster further collaboration in teaching and research.

Career opportunities

Joining a joint UK-China PhD program offers the opportunity to gain research and life experience in the emerging dynamic East Asian biomedical and biotechnology research space.

The 21st century’s centre of economic gravity is shifting eastwards and many research and academic career opportunities are shifting in that direction also. Combining this with strong links to an established global and European research university offers a unique combination of global career opportunities.

There is an opportunity to learn the Chinese language and gain entry and insight into China’s ancient rich culture and modern, rapidly developing economy and society.
