Typically a Research Group in the Division consists of 7 to 14 academic staff and between 5 to 20 PhD students. Work is usually laboratory-based but we also offer molecular simulation and pharmacy practice projects. The Division has excellent facilities for molecular biology, cell culture, confocal microscopy, radioisotope, spectroscopy, DNA sequencing, and oligonucleotide synthesis. We are also well set up for in vitro and in vivo gene transfer and the generation and maintenance of genetically modified cells/animals. Facilities are available for human metabolic studies and for clinical pharmacological studies including non-invasive measurements of body function. Students receive techniques and research methods training from academic and appropriately-trained technical staff. In the last five years King's has invested £210m on the research facilities at the Guy's and Waterloo campuses which the division spans. Central facilities available to staff & students within the division include state-of-the-art library and IT facilities, with an extensive collection of books, journals and electronic databases available to all students. Each PhD student is provided with deskspace and computer access. The School of Biomedical and Health Sciences has strict procedures in place to ensure adherence to good laboratory practice, overseen by the School Safety Manager. In accordance with College policy and procedures, risk assessments are undertaken by the supervisors and the students prior to the commencement of the project. These assessments (and the associated working procedures) are kept under review and modified as necessary. Students are encouraged to attend the divisions in-house seminar programme featuring internationally-renowned academics from UK and overseas institutions, as well as relevant seminars in the other research divisions at Kings. The interdisciplinary nature of the division enables postgraduates to benefit not only from exchange of information that takes place in the regular laboratory meetings (postgraduate students give seminars within these fora) but also from cross-fertilization of ideas provided by the six groups. In addition, staff and students within the School of Biomedical and Health Sciences interact with the Schools of Medicine, Dentistry and Nursing as well as the Institute of Psychiatry. Every year, all postgraduate students participate in a one-day research symposium which provides the forum for them to present posters or oral communications in parallel themed lecture series. The symposium is attended by staff, students and representatives from Research Councils, charities and industry. Students are also encouraged to present their work at national and international conferences and the School of Biomedical & Health Sciences has a travel bursary scheme available to support such activity.
Minimum 2:1 first degree in pharmacy, chemistry, molecular life science or biomedical science, although further graduate study or appropriate work experience may also be taken into account. Equivalent qualifications from overseas candidates are acceptable.
