Flexible Training Award

We have a Flexible Training Award scheme which is funded by the Medical Research Council (MRC).

All MRC DTP in IBR students registered for a PhD are eligible to apply for funds for specialist training, which must meet one of the MRC eligibility criteria as follows:

Here are some examples of student training that has been funded by the Flexible Training Award:

K DhillonKaren Dhillon l training at a company developing miniature microscopes for circuit neuroscience

It was useful to watch live demos and be able to ask all the technical questions I had. The most useful session was data analysis and training on how to use the software in the way I needed it - I work on a different cell type to what they're used to, so being able to explain my needs in person was wonderful.

S LiStephen Li l Systems Biology course - From Large Datasets to Biological Insight

The workshop provided an introduction to basic concepts related to bioinformatics analysis. The most relevant module is on supervised machine learning, an approach that I am currently applying to sRNA prediction.

B RobertsBen Roberts l Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (ECIS) training

The training allowed me to study how the technique worked, evaluate the equipment and set-up required to utilise this method and finally discuss with experts how I could integrate this into the BBB-Chip I am in the process of building.
