Cephalosporin postgraduate award to the value of approximately £3,500 p.a. to be awarded for three or four years to a student commencing a DPhil in the academic year 2022-23 to conduct research in the medical, biological or chemical sciences, and whose research falls within the interests of the E.P.A. Cephalosporin Fund.
