DPhil in Cardiovascular Medicinal Chemistry
This DPhil in Cardiovascular Medicinal Chemistry is fully funded by the British Heart Foundation (BHF) Centre of Research Excellence (CRE) in Oxford and offers a generous stipend. This is an exciting opportunity aimed at graduates in chemistry/biochemistry or a related discipline who want to apply their skills to advance cardiovascular research and treatment.
This 4 year course takes the form of a one year taught/research component followed by a three year D.Phil. The first year will involve taught components in medicinal chemistry, drug discovery and basic cardiovascular science followed by two ten-week project rotations. The criterion for these projects (and for the subsequent three year D.Phil. project) is that they must be run under the joint supervision of a chemist and a cardiovascular biologist and will be conducted at the interface of Chemistry/Cardiovascular Science.
Further details of this programme, the supervisors that offer projects, examples of collaborative research projects and how to apply can be found on the website.
