Research Themes

As part of the DTP, there are three research themes which encompass the MRC biomedical research areas. These are:

  • Neuroscience and Mental Health (NMH)
  • Infection, Immunity and Repair (IIR)
  • Population Health Sciences (PHS)

For each theme, there is an Academic Theme Leader who will organise theme-specific activities. This is to promote networking opportunities between those undertaking research in similar areas and to expose you to current methods and challenges within these areas.

Theme leaders are:
