Welcome to the Silwood and NHM Masters project proposal database. This is a live list of projects proposals put forward by staff at Silwood and the NHM as well as staff elsewhere at Imperial College London and at other external project partners.
Supervisors will continue to add projects to this list throughout the first few months of the courses, so do keep checking back!
