IPF “pump priming” grants are designed to promote new research ideas that require the use of in vivo mammalian (non-human) animals. Grants will be up to £10,000 and must be used for consumables/animals and/or essential new equipment or travel of the PI to a collaborating laboratory to learn novel techniques. Deadline for applications is 3 June 2013. download the application form (doc)
Director of Studies: Dr Samir S Ayoub
The studentship is for a period of three years, subject to satisfactory progress and provides an annual stipend of £15,590 (Research Council recommended rate plus £2000 for London costs), payment of tuition fees at the UK/EU rate and research costs. *Applicants from outside the UK/EU are eligible to apply for the studentship on the understanding that the difference in the cost of tuition fee is payable by the candidate. Current full time UK/EU and International fees are £3,828 and £10,860 respectively.
The closing date for completed applications is 31 May 2013. Interviews will be held in the week of the 24 June/1 July 2013.
The MSc Pharmaceutical Enterprise programme is an applied multidisciplinary course designed for entrepreneurial high-achieving individuals with ambition to take leading roles in SME pharmaceutical companies.
Type of Course: Taught, continuing professional development
Study Options: Full time, part time
Duration: 1 year Full-Time or 2 years Part-Time
Start date: September 2013
This programme will equip you with the necessary ethos, critical evaluative skills and technical competence to pursue a research career in the in vivo sciences. Such an approach is essential to understand the complex interactions among body systems, and how these may be modified with adaptations, by drugs, and during pathologies.
The BPS integrative pharmacology fund recognizes the need to support training in the in vivo sciences. Funding (max £500 per project) is available now for Ordinary Members who wish to provide final year undergraduate students with the opportunity to complete an in vivo research project in the 2012/13 academic year. Funding will contribute to the costs of training for students and/or the cost of a personal Home Office Licence. There are a maximum of 20 awards each year.
• The project supervisor (applicant) must be a member of the BPS
• The student must be a member of the BPS (free for undergraduates)
• The research proposal will require that the student utilises skills regulated by a Home Office personal licence
• The research proposal must be pharmacological in nature and the need for the in vivo skills must clearly be driven by the scientific problem
• A member can apply for a maximum of three student bursaries per academic year but as the number of awards is limited it may be capped to one per supervisor if demand is high
You will be asked to provide the following information:
• Supervisor’s name, BPS membership number and organization
• Student’s name, BPS membership number and contact details
• Summary of project proposal (300 words)
• Summary of skills student will acquire.

Please submit each student application separately.
Applications can be submitted at any time. Awards will be announced in late June and December.
Successful applicants will be expected to submit the following information by September 2013:
1. An abstract of the final project and list of in vivo skills acquired by the student
2. A copy of the student’s personal Home Office Licence
3. Student report (approx 300 words) about what skills they developed throughout the project
Failure to provide this information will result in a letter to the University supervisor and the blacklisting of the host institution from further awards.
The University of Surrey offers a full-time one-year taught Masters programme in Toxicology (starting in September/October each year) for which scholarships are available.
This well-established conversion programme is designed to train individuals with degrees (or other professional qualifications) in appropriate scientific disciplines for careers in all sectors of employment within toxicology, particularly in pharmaceutical, healthcare, chemical, food, agriculture, other bio-industries and regulatory agencies, or for progression to a research degree. The aim is to provide a broad appreciation of the many aspects of toxicology, with focus on the molecular mechanisms of chemically induced toxicity and the assessment of toxicological hazards.
Toxicology research at Surrey has an international reputation. The programme also benefits from input by renowned toxicologists from many organizations who teach on the programme, host visits, offer project placements and guide on programme development. This maximises the employment prospects of our graduates by ensuring the training is both current and relevant to industry, government and regulatory bodies.
A suite of flexible postgraduate programmes and short courses designed specifically for physicians, pharmacists and scientists.
