CRIPACC also offers a selection of research networks which are open to PhD students, including FoodNet, ReACH and AgeNet.

Doctoral students are supported by a team of experienced supervisors and a PhD tutor.   Further information on our current PhD students and experiences of past students can be found in CRIPACC's PhD student profiles page.
