The Platelet Society is delighted to annouce they will be offering three studentship opportunities during the summer of 2022
Platelets are known to play vital roles in many aspects of health and disease including vascular health. Recently it has become increasing apparent that vascular health is important for the development of dementia, a crippling disease affecting people of all ages. Due to a generous donation, the Platelet Society are funding up to 3 studentships in the area of Platelets and Dementia to run in the summer of 2022.
The aim of these studentships is to encourage platelet scientists to look for applications of their research in questions relevant to dementia, and provide opportunities for high calibre undergraduate students to experience working in a research lab. This opportunity would be a great way for students considering a PhD to experience working on a research project.
To coincide with the studentships, we will also be organising an online meeting around the subject area of ‘Platelets and Dementia’ and we will be inviting successful students to present their work at this event.
Applications open on the 1st January 2022 and close on the 18th March 2022. General enquires on the studentships should be sent to email@example.com
