The Midlands Integrative Biosciences (Doctoral) Training Partnership (MIBTP) is a BBSRC funded doctoral training partnership between the University of Warwick, the University of Birmingham, Aston University, Harper Adams University and the University of Leicester. The universities are separate entities, but there is large and growing cooperation between partners. We recognise that interdisciplinarity underpins most significant research and that critical mass is vital to ensure impact globally.

The MIBTP has the ambition to deliver world-class research across the Life Sciences by providing innovative Postgraduate training. Our programme combines quantitative (mathematics, statistics, bioinformatics) and experimental (Biology, Biomedicine, Chemistry, Biotechnology) components into truly interdisciplinary research.

BBSRC funding for UK/EU students. All MIBTP students will be provided with 4 years of financial support (Research Council level of stipend with additional travel allowance in the first year), including funds for research consumables and conference travel, as well as a laptop for use throughout their studies.
