The aim of this 4-year PhD Programme is to train students from bioscience, physical science or numerical first degrees to undertake research in theoretical systems biology and bioinformatics. Students via their research will directly contribute to the iterative cycle (illustrated above) of identifying a bioscience or clinical problem, developing a novel theoretical methodology and then applying it to advance experimental studies. At the end of the training you will have acquired expertise in theoretical approaches and an understanding of the experimental protocols. Students may undertake experimental studies to test hypotheses generated from their predictive modelling. In this programme you will be a member of an inter-disciplinary community of students at Imperial.

This programme is coordinated by the Centre for Integrative Systems Biology and Bioinformatics which co-ordinates research, training and outreach  at Imperial.
