Studentships & Fellowships


A core activity of the Centre is to provide training for basic science or clinical science PhD students in translational research on neuromuscular disease. The new PhD program consists of a four-year doctoral training programme for basic scientists and a three-year doctoral training for clinically qualified scientists. Information of ongoing projects can be found on each student's webpage.


The MRC Centre for Neuromuscular Diseases offers a range of neuromuscular fellowships ranging from a period of six months to two years. These include general neuromuscular fellowships covering all types of inherited and acquired muscle, peripheral nerve, neuromuscular junction and anterior horn cell disorders. We also offer individualised fellowships to suit particular fellow requirements. These fellowships are available at both the London and the Newcastle sites of the MRC Centre for Neuromuscular Diseases.

Neuromuscular Masters (MSc, MRes) programme

Our students will be part of a world-leading community of scientists and clinicians working at the cutting edge of translational research in Neuromuscular Diseases. The course is open to scientists, clinicians and allied health professions (nurses, physiotherapists etc) and will consist of taught modules as well as a research

Taught Modules include:

  • Skeletal Muscle and associated diseases
  • Peripheral Nerves and associated diseases
  • Motor neurons and associated diseases
  • Cellular and Molecular Mechanisms of disease
  • Advanced genetic technologies and clinical applications
