The GDSC is a research centre investigating the responses of cells to genome damage and their relationship to cancer and other aspects of human disease.
The purpose-built laboratories, funded by the Joint Infrastructure Fund (JIF), the Wolfson Foundation and Sussex University, are located adjacent to the School of Life Sciences, and provide a dynamic and collaborative environment for carrying out state-of -the-art research. Much of this research is supported by the Medical Research Council via a Centre Grant and Programme Grants. The Centre currently houses twenty research groups.
Additional funding bodies:
Most studentships in the GDSC are funded by the MRC, BBSRC, EU and Cancer Research UK studentships. These cover registration, running expenses, travel to an international meeting and a stipend. Eligibility for these studentships depends on the criteria set by the funding bodies.
