PhD students

A key aim of the NIHR Greater Manchester PSTRC is to build further capacity in primary care safety research at early stages of translation within and between research and practice communities.

Our funding for 2017 to 2022 is supporting PhD students in all research themes, with additional PhD students from within the Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health in health economics.
