Overview

The school is highly committed to training the next generation of scientists from both the UK and overseas, taking great pride in the standard of our postgraduate provision.

New students enter an exciting research environment in which we support and challenge our postgraduates to excel. All postgraduates receive extensive research and transferable skills training.

The school is well supported by programme and project grants, particularly from the Medical Research Council, BBSRC, Wellcome Trust, Cancer Research UK and British Heart Foundation. This has enabled the school to provide a vibrant environment for research; we have more than 100 PhD students at various stages in their research projects.

Careers

The majority of our postgraduate students of the  Physiology, Pharmacology and Neuroscience  programme offered by the University of Bristol  become highly productive researchers through the course of their studies, publishing in leading peer-reviewed biomedical journals. Most go on to post-doctoral research in academia and industry, both in the UK and abroad. Other students use the skills gained during their study to enter postgraduate-level employment.

The school is also committed to promoting the advancement of women in science, and has received an Athena Silver SWAN award for our work in this area.

Programme Structure

Research groups
  • The School of Physiology, Pharmacology and Neuroscience encompasses internationally recognised research groups with interests extending from the whole animal, cell signalling and neuropharmacology to cardiovascular/respiratory function, synaptic plasticity and the study of sensory and sensorimotor systems in the intact brain. The diversity of this research is reflected in the wide range of postgraduate projects available.
  • A number of research groups use the world-class Wolfson Bioimaging Facility, which contains state-of-the-art light and electron microscopes. The school has strong links with the pharmaceutical industry and has forged collaborative research programmes with a number of companies. The school collaborates with clinical colleagues, aiming to translate our discoveries to the clinic to treat of a wide array of diseases: from neurological and neuropathic disorders to cancer and cardiovascular disease.
