Full DPhil in Infection, Immunology and Translational Medicine course information (University of Oxford admissions website)

The IITM DPhil programme provides integrated training in infection and immunology, and how fundamental research can be translated into benefits for human health. The course provides outstanding opportunities for research in basic mechanisms underlying the pathogenesis of infectious diseases, immune and inflammatory responses to infection, and the development of drugs and vaccines. The first year comprises three laboratory rotations in different disciplines, and access to extensive training courses and support. There is then a three-year period to undertake research towards your DPhil.

Students benefit by performing research with world-leading scientists in excellent facilities, and training in state-of-the-art techniques for studying Infectious Disease and Immunology.

Please note: Shortlisting will take place on Wednesday 18th January 2017 and interviews will be held on Thursday 26th January 2017 and Friday 27th January 2017. Due to the time between shortlisting and interview dates, please bear in mind you could be called for interview at short notice.
