The awards were made to post-doctoral clinical lecturers from both medical and surgical specialties, as part of a competitive scheme. They will fund research salaries, laboratory fees, consumables and equipment.
The scheme will assist awardees with gaining experience and the ability to successfully apply for competitive funding at higher levels (e.g. Clinician Scientist posts or Intermediate/Senior Fellowships).
The scheme was partly funded by the Wellcome Trust’s Institutional Strategic Support Fund.
