Collectively the DTC has a strong record of alumni success with around 60% of students going on to pursue academic careers and 20% entering into industrial research. Our alumni have also been responsible for at least 11 start-up companies, some with investment in the millions, and over 30 granted or pending patents (at least 15 of these arising directly from their DPhil work). Many students who have gone on to successful careers are invited back to talk to current students within the Skills Training sessions.

The EPSRC & BBSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Synthetic Biology admitted its first students in 2014 so we do not currently have an alumni network. This page will be updated in due course.
