The Great UK PhD Data Science survey identified a need for holistic, advanced-level training for PhD students.

In response, HDR UK is running Academic Schools and Immersion Weeks where early career scientists and postgraduates can network with and learning from current industry leaders.

It provides a superb opportunity for industry, academia and the NHS to engage with some of the most talented up-and-coming data scientists in the UK – including future leaders in the field.

For 2023 the HDR UK – Roche Summer School for PhD students will explore single-cell imaging analysis. Right now, HDR UK is looking for partners to help lead future Academic Schools and Immersion Weeks

“Team Science at its best: HDR UK is a hub where likeminds, with a common aim of improving patients’ prospects, come together with the support of an amazing network of collaborators across disciplines and with access to research-ready nation-wide health data.”

“Being given the support to pursue my own research and have access to training opportunities to continue to learn and grow was invaluable. One of my highlights was helping to organise the second HDR UK Summer School."
