About our DTP

The London Intercollegiate Doctoral Training Partnership (MRC LID) is a partnership between St George’s, University of London (SGUL) and London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), funded by the Medical Research Council (MRC).

MRC LID brings together two outstanding specialist schools to provide integrated skills training to develop a cohort of biomedical and public health scientists with world-class expertise in areas of strategic importance to UK and global medical research.

MRC LID has made widening participation and cultivating a supportive, inclusive, and diverse community of future scientific leaders central to our approach to developing the DTP: MRC LID Equity, Diversity and Inclusion.

MRC LID is overseen by the board of management which comprises academics from both institutions.
