For complete and up-to-date information about this course, please visit the relevant University of Oxford course page via As a DPhil in Molecular and Cellular Medicine student you will spend up to four years in one of the department's many research groups, working on a project supervised by the group's principal investigator. You will take part in the extensive training programme specifically organised for graduate students within the department. You will develop your research skills through a range of research training in your first year, including compulsory attendance at our fundamentals in biomedical research lectures in your first week and a selection of four specialist modules throughout year 1 (one half-day module available every month). During the first term you will develop, in consultation with your supervisor, a clear study design for your project. You will be required to attend and present at postgraduate seminars, not only to develop your presentation skills but also to benefit from the feedback, support and interaction from your University peers and senior academics. In addition the department runs regular seminars by internal and external speakers on various topics related to chronic inflammatory conditions, which will provide further opportunity for you to broaden your knowledge in the field. Attendance at a weekly journal club is also expected. You are also strongly encouraged to attend skills training courses run by the Medical Sciences Division. Your progress will be monitored and assessed regularly via: 1. completion of a termly report by you and your supervisor(s) through Graduate Supervision Reporting (GSR); 2. completion of a 5,000-word transfer report and viva before the end of the fourth term; 3. completion of a 3,000-word literature review by the end of the seventh term (students based in the Kennedy Institute only) 4. confirmation of your status by the end of the ninth term; and 5. submission of your DPhil thesis (the final stage), which will be assessed by viva. Stages 2, 4 and 5 will be assessed by independent senior academics. Applicants are strongly advised to visit the department's website (see Further Information and Enquiries) to help them identify the most suitable research topic and related supervisors. Projects are available in both basic and translational science covering a variety of areas related to musculoskeletal and chronic inflammatory conditions.
