Students will be based at the University of Bradford but will form part of a HeRC Doctoral Training Network that will provide integrated and co-ordinated training from across collaborating institiutions.

There will also be opportunity to transfer knowledge between sites and with external collaborators including NHS, industry partners and other academic institutions.
