Interdisciplinary Summer School


Applications for summer 2019 are now closed.

Are you an undergraduate in the physical sciences that has an interest in biology?

Are you interested in how cells function, how organisms develop or how bacteria gain resistance to antibiotics?

We are looking for students to get involved in a wet-lab project at the cutting edge of biomedical research. Previous students have included a mathematician investigating memory in worms, a physicist studying cell division and a chemist probing a molecular motor!

Scholarships will be awarded on a competitive basis to cover accommodation and living costs as students undertake a 10-week practical project. Awards will be available from July-September 2019. Full training will be provided with no previous experience required.

Students on a Biological Sciences degree stream are eligible to apply, but must have a strong A-level in mathematics or equivalent, and will be encouraged to take up a theoretical/dry lab project.

You will preferably be in the penultimate year of your course (although students in other years may apply) and have an interest in pursuing a career in research after you finish.

In order to complete the application form you must select three principal investigators with a biomedical theme whose research you find interesting. The following links list potential supervisors from Cell & Developmental Biology, Microbiology, Translational Medicine (Warwick Medical School), and Biomedical Sciences (School of Life Sciences).
