MRes projects available

MRes Bioengineering students work on their research project throughout the year.  You must discuss possible projects with your potential supervisor before making your MRes application to ensure that there is a suitable project available for you. 

Some specific projects available for 2021-22 are listed below and more will be added soon.  If none of the projects is suitable for you, you can also contact your chosen supervisor directly to discuss an alternative project.
