The EPSRC has funded the new Centre for Doctoral Training in Synthesis for Biology and Medicine (SBM CDT), based in the Department of Chemistry. This is a 4-year DPhil programme that offers joint academic-industrial training in all aspects of synthesis coupled with an in-depth appreciation of its application to biology and medicine. The SBM CDT will adopt an IP-free model to allow completely unfettered exchange of information, know-how and specific expertise between students and supervisors on different projects and across different industrial companies. Our goal is to generate highly trained, well-balanced researchers capable of world-leading research output. The SBM CDT is supported by the EPSRC and 13 industrial partners. This support will enable us to employ a uniquely integrated academic-industrial training model, producing graduates capable of addressing major challenges in the pharmaceutical/agrochemical industries who will ultimately make a major impact on UK science.
