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. The Centre was initially established with MRC Centre Grant support and the current research Programme Grants are supported by a variety of funding agencies including the Wellcome Trust, CRUK, MRC and the BBSRC . 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.
