Korea Brain Research Institute (KBRI) and UK-Dementia Research Institute (UK-DRI) at King’s College London (the Department of Basic & Clinical Neuroscience, Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience) are seeking applications for students who wish to undertake PhD degrees at King’s College London. This PhD programme is funded by the KBRI and King’s College London, with support from UK-DRI, and will provide outstanding students from South Korea and the UK with opportunities to train with the aim of developing the next generation of scientific leaders in Dementia research.
