PhD studentship funded by Cambridge Cancer Genomics

Dr Tim Cannings has secured full funding for a PhD Studentship with Cambridge Cancer Genomics Ltd, to apply statistical research to CCGs large patient tumour genomics databases. This will help lead to better treatment outcomes for cancer patients around the world, by pointing the way to optimal treatments at an earlier stage based on patients' individual circumstances. The PhD will be co-supervised by Dr Kevin Myant in IGMM, and will hopefully lead to more Data-led collaborations between Maths and IGMM in future.
