EASTBIO Doctoral Training Partnership

EASTBIO is the East of Scotland BioScience Doctoral Training Partnership. We are funded by the BBSRC and supported in our work by the Scottish Universities Life Sciences Alliance. We offer an excellent programme of collaborative training for PhD students in Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh and St Andrews, four of the UK’s leading research intensive universities. We also host summer research experience placements for undergraduates.
