Are there any/many awards for current PhD students in a molecular biology discipline, particularly cancer biology in the UK?
Loads. Despite all the cuts, science has been relatively protected, and cancer biology is very well funded. As for which unis - cancer biology is often so closely linked to fundamental cell biology that pretty much any university with a cell biology/molecular biology department will have some cancer-related research going on, as will any uni with a medical school. It's competitive though, because more people are choosing academia as the jobs dry up...
Thanks 4matt. I was enquiring about competitions for work completed during the course or shortly after completing a PhD as opposed to the prize of actually getting a PhD position .:-)
