EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Next Generation Organ-on-a-chip Technology (COacT)

COacT brings together industry and other stakeholders, working with Queen Mary's world leading scientists and bioengineers to train 60 PhD students in this rapidly expanding field.

There is an urgent unmet need, both in industry and academia, for skilled scientists and bioengineers able to develop organ-chip technology and associated predictive in vitro models. We will provide at least 60 industry-linked 4-year PhD studentship, training the students with the skills and knowledge to become future leaders in this multidisciplinary field.

The graduates from this Centre for Doctoral Training will help advance this exciting technology in order to transform the medicines development pipeline, delivering safer, more effective therapeutics for the benefit of all society.
