The School of Life Sciences has embarked on a fund raising initiative, the aim of which is to secure enough money to fund three postgraduate studentships.

We believe that many of our former undergraduate and postgraduate students will be interested in contributing to a scheme that will enable more students to be trained in their Alma Mater.
