MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership

Discovery Medicine North

An outstanding opportunity to improve lives

Utilising the combined expertise of five world-leading institutions, the Discovery Medicine North (DiMeN) partnership will train the next generation of researchers to tackle the major health problems facing the population.

The partner institutions (Universities of Leeds, Liverpool, Newcastle, Sheffield and York) are core members of the Northern Health Sciences Alliance, which confronts stark North-South disparities in the rates of chronic disease, poor health and early death in a population of >15 million.

The partnership provides up to 40 fully-funded studentships per year and delivers training for the next generation of biomedical researchers.
