Students

The LMB’s student community is truly international, providing a lively and diverse research community.

Most UK and EU students are supported by Medical Research Council Studentships. Students from overseas are funded either by studentships from their own country or by scholarships such as the LMB Cambridge Scholarship or Gates Foundation Scholarship.

For graduate students from the UK and abroad, the LMB’s International PhD Programme provides 20-30 places each year to students wanting to do cutting-edge research in molecular biology. For undergraduates, 8-12 MRC Summer Studentships are usually available each year. See the individual web pages for detailed information on opportunities and on how and when to apply.
