The major themes of the Programme are: misfolded proteins and disease, intracellular membrane traffic, autoimmune disease and haematopoietic stem cell biology.
The initial year of training involves 3 ten-week mini-projects selected by the students as well as lectures and courses, which provide an excellent grounding in core scientific areas. At the end of the first year, students are assessed formally for a Masters degree on the basis of a portfolio of written and practical laboratory projects. Students then select a supervisor for their 3 year PhD thesis project, which is carried out during years 2-4.
