Wellcome funding for Cell Therapy PhD programme
1 July 2015
The Wellcome Trust has awarded funding to a four year PhD programme entitled 'Cell therapies and regenerative medicine' taking place in the Centre for Stem Cells & Regenerative Medicine. The programme will fund five PhD students for three years and will train a new generation of researchers in regenerative medicine. PhD supervisors will be drawn from across the different divisions and campuses of King's College London.
Professor Fiona Watt will be the director of the new programme and the deputy director will be Professor Graham Lord (Director of NIHR Comprehensive Biomedical Research Centre, Guy's and St Thomas' Hospital and King's College London).
The programme is generously supported by King's and builds on the remarkable success of the King's Bioscience Institute (KBI) MRes/PhD Programme in Biomedical and Translational Science funded by the Guy's and St Thomas' Charity.
