One of the key missions of the MRC-PPU is to train the research leaders of tomorrow, and we’re looking for very bright and enthusiastic people to join our Unit. Please take time to read interviews with some of our former staff who have gone on to great positions on our Alumini Intervew page.

The interviews are so different but all have one thing in common - they say they wouldn't be where they are now without their time at PPU. All say one of the best things about being there was it was like a family in that they could always find help with their research when they needed it and a friend when they needed one too! It's clearly a good place to train.
