PhD supervisors have been selected across departments from King’s campuses, for their expertise in core areas of relevance to regenerative medicine.

Collectively, the supervisors provide knowledge in diseases of unmet clinical need, in innate and adaptive immunity, in organ transplantation and clinical trials of cell and gene therapies.  Supervisors also have scientific expertise in relevant models of endogenous tissue repair, and knowledge of bioengineering, disease modelling, drug screens and cell tracking in patients.

Students of this programme will address these questions with access to King’s world class resources such as the Nikon Imaging Centre, Wellcome Trust – EPSRC Centre of Excellence in Medical Engineering and the MRC Centre for Transplantation. This programme will equip students to further translate science into regenerative medicine so that they graduate with excellent career prospects.

Congratulations to King's Wellcome PhD students
