Training

CDT Students are Working Closely with Industry and Charitable Organisations

Industry links form an important part of our CDT with about a quarter of studentships sponsored by companies including AstraZeneca, Procter & Gamble and GlaxoSmithKline. This helps to maximise the impact of our research in sectors such as the pharmaceutical and biotech industries. The quality of research undertaken by our students has been such that we have been able to secure ~£63M in follow-on funding to further develop and apply novel technologies that have emerged from research pioneered by our students.  This includes the early stages of translation to enable access to new end-users and collaborators.

In addition to those industrial links, there are also studentships sponsored by charitable funds, such as the BHF and the Imperial Cancer Research UK Centre. See our network maps to visualise the network of supervisors.
