  • An enthusiastic commitment to the recruitment, teaching, training, and mentoring of the next generation of researchers, including research students (taught MPhil and PhDs) and postdoctoral researchers
  • Experience in translating laboratory-based research into real-world clinical benefits
  • Enthusiastic commitment to the recruitment, teaching, training, and mentoring of the next generation of researchers, including research students (MPhil and PhDs) and postdoctoral researchers
