MRC – GSK EMINENT
The Experimental Medicine Initiative to Explore New Therapies is a unique partnership between UK academia and GSK to increase our understanding of disease mechanisms through experimental medicine. EMINENT represents a unique collaborative network, funded up to £8M by the MRC matched in-kind by GSK.
Bringing together investigators from University College London (UCL), the University of Cambridge, the University of Glasgow, the University of Newcastle, Imperial College London and GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), with unprecedented access to GSK’s unlicenced clinic-ready asset portfolio to enable experimental medicine studies aimed at enhancing understanding of disease mechanisms and accelerating development of novel therapeutics for patients in under-served disease areas. PECAT provides the administrative support at Cambridge and posts are advertised here as they come online.

NIH Oxford-Cambridge Scholars Program (PhD)
The National Institutes of Health Oxford-Cambridge Scholars Program is an accelerated, individualized doctoral training program for outstanding science students committed to biomedical research careers. Students spend two years at the NIH and two years in either Oxford or Cambridge.
MPhil in Translational Biomedical Research
The MPhil in Translational Biomedical Research is aimed at students who wish to apply basic science to medical practice. The course introduces students to research skills and specialist knowledge and provides an introduction, and training, in methodology for clinical scientists.
Experimental Medicine Training Initiative
The EMI provides high quality training for motivated, bright and enthusiastic clinicians and non-clinical scientists in the design and execution of Experimental Medicine studies, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to lead Experimental Medicine studies in the future.
Training is customised to the needs and experience of the individual and is open to clinicians at all career levels, as well as a small number of talented non-clinicians keen to work at the interface between pre-clinical and clinical science.
The main emphasis will be on PhD studentships and postdoctoral fellowships, the latter provided by the creation of EMI Clinical Lectureships (CLs). There are also opportunities for MPhils, more junior academic clinicians, and senior consultant level posts.
