Course summary

The information provided on this page was correct at the time of publication (November 2022). For complete and up-to-date information about this course, please visit the relevant University of Oxford course page via www.graduate.ox.ac.uk/ucas. This DPhil programme, which includes funding support from the British Heart Foundation (BHF), is for basic science graduates who want to undertake advanced research into cardiovascular disease in Oxford. This course is taking part in a continuing pilot programme to improve the selection procedure for graduate applications, in order to ensure that all candidates are evaluated fairly. For this course, the socio-economic data you provide in the application form will be used to contextualise the shortlisting and decision-making processes where it has been provided. The programme provides you with a solid grounding in the study of cardiac and vascular biology through access to taught courses and advanced level seminars, and a choice of projects which includes approximately 70 principle investigators directly engaged in cardiovascular research. These cover all aspects of cardiovascular science, including cardiac imaging, cell signalling, clinical trials and human genetics, developmental biology and regenerative medicine, myocardial biology, integrated physiology, and vascular biology. There are multiple collaborations within and between different departments and research themes, and research interactions have been greatly enhanced and facilitated by a British Heart Foundation Centre of Research Excellence (CRE) award, one of only six in the UK.
