Cambridge MRC DTP Programme

The Cambridge MRC Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) is a partnership between the University of Cambridge and the Babraham Institute, and includes as associate partners the MRC Institutes and Units in Cambridge, and other University Partner Institutes.
Partners in the Cambridge MRC DTP share a mission to contribute to society through the pursuit of education, learning and research at the highest international levels of excellence.
