This page provides a list of academics that can supervise projects for the  Synthetic Biology CDT programme. It is not an exclusive list: any academic at Oxford, Bristol and Warwick can potentially act as a supervisor as long as the project falls in remit. If you have any questions about supervisory arrangements please contact us.
