Researcher Development

Here at COI, we recognise the need to encourage our researchers to develop their skills and strengths in all aspects of their role. In addition to the training and support offered by the University, which can be found below, we are constantly striving to identify gaps in training or development opportunities.

As part of our collaboration efforts with the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences (CAMS), we also provide training programmes for students and staff across China.
