In the Centre for Musculoskeletal Research (CfMR) we are internationally recognised as leaders in the investigation of musculoskeletal disease, from inflammatory conditions to osteoarthritis and pain syndromes. 
We have a strong track record of training PhD students and all our senior staff have a hands on approach to supervision, which has contributed to over 30 students successfully obtaining their PhDs in the last five years alone.
We have a comprehensive programme of training and mentorship directed at all levels of career development.
