MRC LID is a partnership between St George’s, University of London and London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine.
MRC LID is delighted to have received a new MRC Doctoral Training Partnership Award in summer 2021, which continues our highly successful DTP. The new award provides six notional PhD studentships per year, with a further three studentships per year funded by LSHTM & SGUL. The themes are global health, health data science, infectious disease and translational and implementation research.
In preparing our DTP bid we recognised the importance of tackling systemic barriers experienced by students in progressing to postgraduate research degree programmes and of taking a proactive approach to EDI. We have made widening participation and cultivating a supportive, inclusive, and diverse community of future scientific leaders core aspects of our approach to developing the DTP. This includes a ring-fenced scheme for UK students from ethnic minority backgrounds.
Further information about our DTP and the studentships available is available from the drop-down menus.
