The London NERC DTP has funded over 170 PhD students in the natural sciences.
Our aim is to attain new standards of excellence in environmental science research training, and deliver a transformative inter-disciplinary experience for PhD students in the heart of London.
Our students are trained at 8 of the World-leading research centres, which cover a huge range of environmental science research, from those driven by contemporary environmental challenges to those exploring complex questions about the evolution of planet Earth.
New mothers are actively encouraged to breastfeed their children by the medical community, and for good reason; it has health benefits for both mother and baby. But there can also be some negative effects of breastfeeding that mums should be aware of.
