We have more than 50 internationally leading supervisors from our two science faculties (including 14 clinician scientists). A list of all potential supervisors that students may undertake their final PhD project with can be found in this table.

Students applying for the CDT are not required to choose a research project before applying for the programme. At least 30 projects are available each year for students to choose from; these are made available once students start on the programme. Students make their project selection in February, after completing two or three mini lab experience placements to help them decide which area they would like to work in.

Some of the recent projects chosen by CDT students include:
