Our DTP promotes the importance of training, belonging and socialising within a cohort of student peers to enhance the student experience. We are advocates of student-led social events to develop broad-minded and interactive graduates and see such events for our cohorts as a powerful driver of novel collaborations between research groups.

Our social events are organised and lead by our MRC DTP social committee; they arrange regular journal clubs, seasonal celebrations and welcome activities for new students. Our annual MRC DTP Symposium is also organised by a student organising committee representative of students across all of our cohorts and partner programmes.
