Programme Director: Professor Ed Bullmore
The TMAT programme attracts the brightest clinically active candidates at varying levels of seniority, ranging from MB PhD students to clinical lecturers, some wishing to develop translational skills in their chosen specialty, others not yet differentiated, who may become future leaders and teachers of TMAT.
Each trainee has a customised programme which includes a bespoke, modular MPhil and the opportunity to undertake a PhD with formal teaching in a wide range of translational and pharmacological skills, and a project which takes proof-of-concept studies in cell or animal systems forward to proof-of-concept studies in humans.
We have assembled an outstanding faculty of PhD supervisors spanning a wide choice of skills and experience in basic and clinical science. All trainees will have the opportunity for hands-on exposure to the design and conduct of experimental medicine studies investigating the therapeutic potential of new drugs in collaboration with our industrial partner GlaxoSmithKline (GSK).
The TMAT programme supports posts in Clinical Academic Programmes, MB PhD and PhD, and through this support is able to offer students and trainees opportunities for networking with academics involved in a range of research.
