Blood and Transplant Research Unit Mphil in Organ Preservation at University of Cambridge

University of Cambridge, UK is inviting excellent students to apply for a PhD position in transplantation. Candidates are welcome before May 18, 2020.

Applications are invited for a one-year full-time MPhil studentship based in the University of Cambridge Department of Surgery (latest Surgery scholarship positions) commencing in October 2020. The post is funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Blood and Transplant Research Unit (BTRU) in Organ Donation and Transplantation ( and will be based at Addenbrooke’s Hospital on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus (

The BTRU in Organ Donation and Transplantation is one of four BTRUs funded by the NIHR in the UK (fully funded UK scholarships) and is a partnership between the University of Cambridge, Newcastle University and NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT). The overarching aim of the BTRU is to develop and evaluate novel approaches and technologies that will increase the availability of suitable donor organs for transplantation, while improving graft survival. The University Department of Surgery in Cambridge is one of the largest and most active in the UK. Departmental research in transplantation (latest transplantation scholarship positions) addresses the two major problems in transplantation, namely the shortage of organs for transplantation and the loss of transplanted organs to graft rejection. The research being undertaken in the Department includes basic laboratory and translational clinical research projects. There is a strong emphasis on the development of normothermic organ perfusion techniques.

Cambridge has a very strong record for academic students and surgical trainees securing research grants and Fellowships and for winning major prizes at national and international research meetings.

Funding will cover the student’s stipend and University fees. The studentship is only available to UK nationals and EU students who meet the UK residency requirements*.
