Postgraduate programmes

Postgraduate training in physiology, pharmacology and neuroscience is organised through the Faculty of Biomedical Science Graduate School. Our programmes and projects follow the key areas of research in the School, which cover the broad themes of cardiovascular science; cell signalling and cell biology; and neuroscience.

We are involved in the following research and taught programmes, many of which are linked with other schools in the Faculty and beyond.

Research programmes



You are also welcome to make a proposal for a PhD project of your choosing, by contacting an individual principal investigator relevant to your research interests. For general information on undertaking a PhD in our school, visit the PhD in Physiology and Pharmacology prospectus entry.

The Graduate School website also has further information on funding your programme.

Exciting and innovative teaching

Did you know?

We have a regular programme of school research seminars that will expose you to a wide range of research areas and techniques, presented by experts from within the School as well as renowned scientists from the UK and abroad.

I felt it bridged the gap between a BSc and a PhD well. Being able to visit laboratories such as Eli Lilly provided an experience of industry in addition to working in the University.
