This network, part of the University´s interdisciplinary `Healthcare Across the Disciplines´ theme, will establish a major cross-faculty initiative in epigenetics. It will examine the role of age-related epigenetic change in relation to the immune and endocrine systems. The students and supervisors within the network will have monthly meetings and will attend and present their data at their academic unit lab meeting. The students will attend the regular seminar series within their Department and will present at the annual Departmental and Medical School Research meetings and at cross faculty meetings organised by the Krebs Institute. A network of three PhD scholarships is being funded by the University for 3 years, providing a stipend at the standard Research Council rate (£13,590 in 2011-12), UK/EU fees and a research training grant of £1,000 p.a.
