EPSRC-SFI Joint Centre for Doctoral Training in Engineered Tissues for Discovery, Industry and Medicine
The lifETIME (Engineered Tissues for Discovery, Industry and Medicine) CDT is a partnership between the University of Glasgow, the University of Birmingham, Aston University and CÚRAM – Science Foundation Ireland.
We will train innovation leaders in drug discovery and regenerative medicine through development of bioengineered humanised 3D models, microfluidics, diagnostics and sensing platforms.
Animal Free Research UK
The lifETIME CDT focuses on developing animal free technologies for drug discovery, toxicology screening and regenerative medicine. We have a strong commitment to develop technologies that replace and reduce use of animals in research. Further to this, we aim to reduce and replace the use of all animal derived components for our in vitro biological research. We’ve strategically partnered with Animal Free Research UK in order to (1) advocate for new ways to perform research and (2) to provide enhanced training to our students – both aiding us to improve drug discovery in the future.

Finding A Better Way
Our graduates will develop multidisciplinary, high-value skills in the design, creation and application of new knowledge to accelerate therapeutic discovery. Along with our industrial, clinical and charitable partners, the lifETIME CDT will build the cohort of talent the sector needs to thrive.
Gateway to Opportunity
We are looking for amazing engineers, chemists, physicists, biologists, mathematicians and clinicians interested in working together to meet the challenges of improving health.
Students will be hosted in dynamic labs and will have the opportunity for travel around the UK / Ireland and the rest of the world. Join this CDT if you want to perform exciting science, become a leader in the field, develop a network of like-minded talent and and help to grow the rapidly emerging sector focussed on engineering better models for drug discovery.
