The Norwich Research Park Biosciences Doctoral Training Partnership (NRPDTP) is funded by the UKRI Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC).

Norwich Research Park offers a breadth and concentration of internationally recognised bioscience research, together with extensive research facilities and technology platforms, that is quite exceptional in the UK.

Three UKRI-BBSRC strategically supported research institutes: John Innes Centre, Earlham Institute and Quadram Institute Bioscience, together with The Sainsbury Laboratory and UEA, deliver cutting-edge research that addresses all UKRI-BBSRC’s priority research areas.

Our partners

Our partners are strongly committed to the development of outstanding bioscience doctoral graduates, with a balanced set of advanced research and professional transferable skills.

This will enable our graduates to secure high-skilled employment, across a range of different sectors, and thereby directly contribute to the achievement of academic, economic and societal impacts across the UK and beyond.

The single-site location of the NRPDTP allows the students to train as a cohort providing a variety of networking opportunities and creating a vibrant scientific community.

All our students undertake a workplace placement or internship during their four-year programme, providing direct experience of working in a professional environment.
