The Advanced Biomedical Materials Centre for Doctoral Training (est. in 2019), combines the world class strengths in biomedical materials of both The University of Manchester and The University of Sheffield. Our aim is to train the next generation of internationally leading postdoctoral engineers who will enable innovation between industry, clinicians and academics to address areas of national and international need.
We are underpinned strategically by the UK’s £235 million investment of the Henry Royce Institute led by Manchester and partner Sheffield.
The CDT programme begins with a Manchester based three-month taught programme, with a subsequent integrated training programme throughout.
