Showing support for PM David Cameron's initiative, LHS announces 6 PhD Scholarships for Indian students of £7,000 per year. These scholarships are available now.
Dr Eustace Johnson secured funding of £68,000 under DST (Department of Science and Technology) Thematic Partnership for a collaborative project with Anna University, Chennai.
The project is to determine the effects of oxidative and nutritional stress on the ability of mesenchymal stem cells to stimulate tissue regeneration and wound healing via secreted products.
This joint programme will involve the exchange of UK and Indian students to participate in research projects on both campuses as an integral part of their training.
It is anticipated that the work undertaken in this study will pump prime new projects that will feed into a Masters programme. This structured Joint Masters Programme will be developed in the area of Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine.
