Regenerative Medicine Centre for Doctoral Training

The Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Regenerative Medicine spans three universities: Nottingham, Keele and Loughborough. Each university brings its own expertise with over 40 academic staff and their clinical partners contributing to the Centre. Its aim is to equip graduate researchers with the tools and skills needed to translate the potential of cell or tissue based therapies in a constantly evolving field, and further the UK's world-class position on regenerative medicine. 

Programme overview

The centre offers 12 fully-funded studentships each year. As well as their focused PhD research topics, students are exposed to elements of process economics, industrial and clinical practice to ensure a rounded view of regenerative medicine. The CDT offers a strategic and coherent research programme that encourages students to broaden their experience, take charge of their learning, and learn to communicate their projects.

  • During the first year, students will attend mandatory modules to develop core skills. They will also select a PhD project.
  • During years two-four, students will take part in student led activities, secondments and public engagements as well as continue with their PhD project.


The 12 fully-funded studentships cover tuition fees and an annual tax-free stipend of approximately £14,000.

Entry requirements

First or upper-second-class degree in an engineering, physical or life science discipline.
