Our research themes, relating to musculoskeletal disease, are as follows:
- Basic mechanisms of inflammation
- Inflammatory and rheumatic disease
- Clinical trials
- Epidemiology, computational and data science
- Tissue engineering and remodelling
Applications are invited from 1 February - 5 March 2021 (closing date). Students will be hosted in Medical Sciences Division Doctoral Training Centre (MSDTC). Students will also join the Oxford University Clinical Academic Graduate School (OUCAGS) and receive mentorship and buddy support for the full duration of their research and clinical training.
