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.

Thank you to all EASTBIO students and supervisors who have joined the EASTBIO team at our Induction Day (Dundee, 6 October 2016). We are looking forward to seeing all at the next EASTBIO event and offering best wishes to all students with their PhD studies!
