Molecular Sciences for Medicine

Our CDT in Molecular Sciences for Medicine (MoSMed) is an EPSRC funded joint venture between Newcastle and Durham Universities.

Training of scientific leaders

Our CDT delivers a comprehensive research and training programme focussed on science at the interface of molecular and medical sciences,  business skills, innovation and entrepreneurship.

High demand for Life Sciences researchers

The Life Sciences sector contributed more than £30bn to the economy in 2015. It supports half a million jobs in the UK and so there is a high demand for researchers trained in this area.

Molecular sciences such as chemistry, biophysics, molecular biology and protein science, are vital innovations in medicine and the discovery of new medicines and diagnostics.

Benefitting from partnerships with industry

Our CDT also benefits from partnerships, which include:

  • small, local biotech companies
  • large pharmaceutical companies
  • societal stakeholders

Two Institutes, One Campus

Our CDT will run as a single research programme across both Newcastle and Durham Universities to form an extended campus. 

Students will benefit from the complementary research expertise of both institutions in an innovative training environment.
