PhD Funding

Humanimal Trust currently funds two PhD studies focusing on how taking a One Medicine approach to research can drive medical progress in both human and veterinary medicine:

 

Oncolytic Viro-therapy as a Cancer Treatment - University of Surrey

This is a study being undertaken by Nicola Pratt looking at using a virus/viruses to specifically attack cancerous cells rather than chemotherapy to reduce the serious side effects of treatment.
