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.

The Department of Chemistry hosts the first year of the programme. After your first year you will work in the Department in which your main project is based.

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.

Programme Co-ordinators: Dr Angela Russell & Prof Shoumo Bhattacharya
