C3Bio Doctoral Training Initiative: Grand Challenges in Health Technologies

Thanks to the generosity of the University of Bath benefactors Mr Roger Whorrod OBE and Mrs Sue Whorrod and the support of the Department of Development & Alumni Relations, the Centre for Biosensors, Bioelectronics and Biodevices (C3Bio) is pleased to announce a new doctoral training initiative entitled Grand Challenges in Health Technologies.


What is it?

-          A set of interlinked PhD projects from different disciplines based around a single grand challenge in health technologies

-          A cohort experience for PhD students, working closely together

-          A multidisciplinary training environment

-          A focus on real-life impact of PhD research


The Grand Challenge for the cohort starting in October 2019 is: “Disease diagnostics for low resource settings”

The call for project proposals within this challenge is now open.

-          Each project needs to involve a member of C3Bio either as lead supervisor or as co-supervisor but with an important contribution to the project (for the current list of members please visit https://researchportal.bath.ac.uk/en/organisations/centre-for-biosensors-bioelectronics-and-biodevices-c3bio/persons/)

-          Projects will be selected according to scientific and training excellence, fit to the Grand Challenge and complementarity between the projects; a few of the selected projects will need to have an Engineering component

-          Projects need to involve more than one Department in the supervisory team and show multidisciplinarity

-          Match funding from an industrial partner will be considered in the selection


Please complete the form on https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/SL6HQC7 by the 22 October in order to submit your project.

Selection of projects will be done by a panel shortly after this date and the selected projects will be advertised in early November.
