Improving animal and human health and wellbeing across the lifecourse.
*CASE: These are CASE DTP studentships. As part of the programme, you will be required to undertake a placement with the CASE partner for a minimum of 3 months.
*AP: These are Standard DTP studentships with an associate partner where you will be required to spend approximately a total of 50% of your time with each of the partners.
