Nineteen PhD students have trained in the lab and 15 of these went on to further research posts after completing their PhDs. Three of these now run their own research groups. Others have established careers in public engagement, clinical trials coordination and clinical practice. Three MD students have also trained in the lab and all have gone on to further their clinical careers as consultants. In addition, 18 Postdocs have trained in the lab, and four of these have gone on to establish their own research groups.
