Skills development

We support training in research and provide opportunities for clinicians (doctors, nurses and allied healthcare professionals) and researchers to develop their research skills.

We provide data, expertise and supervision to students undertaking higher degrees, including ICNARC's senior scientific staff acting as PhD supervisors.
