Research in Chester Medical School is led by a large group of experienced biomedical and clinical researchers, providing exciting opportunities for study - ranging from basic cellular/molecular science to clinical translational studies. We have the largest population of postgraduate students in the University – now totalling over 120, with representatives from all continents.
Several external bodies collaborate with the School including: Countess of Chester Hospital, Betsi Cadwaladr Hospital, Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital – Oswestry, and Veterinary Tissue Bank Ltd. These connections are further enhanced by links with other regional and international universities.
The Chester Medical School welcomes applicants to undertake research towards MRes, MPhil and PhD research degrees. The School’s research is underpinned by a diverse range of staff research interests and many national and international links. Several staff are on international scientific committees and are on editorial boards of scientific journals.
Research students are welcomed into a vibrant research community with a weekly journal club that is open to all students, and we run a monthly seminar series with the Countess of Chester Hospital.
