Our Postgraduate Training aims to enrol the most exceptional candidates and nurture them to become the next generation of leaders in world-class asthma research.
The PhD studentships are further supported by the extensive infrastructure of the Asthma UK Centre for Applied Research. In addition to postgraduate training, other platforms include methodological support and practical resources (including our UK database of asthma research volunteers, REACH, and the UK Asthma Observatory), structures for robust patient and public involvement and proactive dissemination supported by a Knowledge Exchange lead.
The varied studentships cut across all research programmes of the Centre, and across our strategic supporting platforms. See below for details of all our PhD studentships.
We have directly leveraged increased funding for asthma research and brokered collaboration between clinicians, researchers and policy makers.
Some studentships are funded directly by Asthma UK as part of the core funding of the Centre. Others are funded though matched institutional/government/health board support. There are new opportunities for PhD students across the UK to become formally affiliated to the Centre; which should further enhance research development and UK-wide collaboration.
All our PhD students and early career researchers benefit from the support and training of the Postgraduate Training Platform.
