Current Anatomical Society Studentships

The Anatomical Society supports cutting edge modern research through a series of fully funded research studentships.  Each studentship is focused on a specific project associated with anatomical science.  Studentships are awarded on a competitive basis annually and only members of the Society can apply.  Projects that are currently funded are listed below.  Click on any of the project titles below for more information.
