Early career training and support
9 March 2017
The Faculties of Biomedical Sciences and Health Sciences have a dynamic postgraduate community enrolled in taught or research-based programmes. Postgrads receive their training in internationally renowned research groups which span the biomedical science disciplines of Biochemistry, Cellular and Molecular Medicine and Physiology, Pharmacology and Neuroscience through to the disciplines associated with population health which include life course epidemiology, genomics, primary care and public health with a particular emphasis on methodology.
Research takes place in laboratories within the University and in clinical settings across Bristol, including the University Hospitals Bristol Trust, North Bristol Trust, as well as general practices and other community health services. For further details go to the Elizabeth Blackwell Institute (EBI) website. One recent success is Marc Amoyel, who won an EBI Early Career Fellowship to pursue a project entitled The genetics of stem cell competition.
