Education and training is central to the work of our BRC, through the School of Translational and Experimental Medicine (STEM)
The school is one of our four research clusters and demonstrates the importance of training and capacity development to world-leading research.
STEM has been hugely influential in raising awareness of the need to support early career translational researchers.
It has also helped to refine existing training models and identify gaps in training provision.
It recognises the need to be able to respond to emerging needs in the research environment and has enabled our BRC to recruit extremely high quality fellows and students.
STEM focuses its resources on the recruitment of the best projects and the best trainees.
It has strong support from faculty and education leads at all stages in the recruitment process. The trainees’ success is linked to our BRC offering a complete ‘package’ to trainees and students.
Trainees benefit from funding and protected research time, as well as additional training in research methodologies and personal development to help them succeed in a competitive funding environment.
