Cooperative Awards in Science and Engineering (CASE) studentships

  • We are keen to work with industrial partners and have been awarded CASE studentships by the BBSRC in the past.
  • BBSRC encourages links in the provision of research training between academic institutions and industry so students can experience different research environments.
    CASE awards are doctoral studentships which provide research training in a partnership between an eligible academic institution and a co-operating company. Students are jointly supervised by an academic and a company supervisor. (More details about eligibility can be found on the BBSRC site.)

Running from 18-21 June, Birkbeck Science Week will explore the research taking place at the College.

The findings suggest that the harmful aggregates associated with Huntington’s disease emerge from a form which could be reversible. This could have major implications for slowing or preventing disease progression in the future.

Birkbeck's Mentoring Pathways scheme opens up opportunities for students from Biological Sciences.
