Internships launched at CLAHRC NWC

The beginning of January at CLARC NWC saw the arrival of three Liverpool University students and one UCLan student embarking on their PhDs.

This brings the total number of CLAHRC PhD students to six with one further student due to start in March.

In addition, 10 candidates from our partner organisations were successful in obtaining a place on the internship scheme which begins at the end of February starting with a training session at UCLan. 

The intern projects represent research interests from across our partner organisations.  They include an investigation into community provision for support and care of working age adults with COPD living in East Lancashire’s most deprived communities; how support can be improved for patients with addictions and dependencies when having radiotherapy treatment for head or neck cancer and a project examining pre-existing health inequalities(known to influence the development of obesity), which could be responsible for encouraging weight gain post bariatric surgery.

Jo McAdam Research Capacity Delivery Manager stated ‘This is an exciting time for interns collaborating with CLAHRC NWC. The internship scheme is a great opportunity for members of our partner organisations to undertake a small research project and learn how research works.  We look forward to working together to build research skills and develop research careers’
