WTISSF Launch Event

The University of Leicester is inviting applications for exceptionally talented and motivated early career researchers to lead highly innovative research projects.

These Early Career Fellowship opportunities are funded by Leicester’s Wellcome Trust Institutional Strategic Support Fund (ISSF) to enhance research in our priority areas of Precision Medicine, and Chemical and Structural Biology, Ethnic Health and Migration, and New Health Agendas in the Social Sciences and Humanities.

An event was held on Wednesday 1 March to give more information on how to apply for the funds. Members of staff from across the University heard from experts in the five schemes, which were:

• Early Career Researchers Fellowships
• Translation/Innovation funding
• Discipline Bridges
• Institutional Partnerships
• Public Engagement

The event was introduced by Professor Philip Baker, Head of the College of MBSP and Professor Julie Coleman, Head of the College of ASSH. Guests were then invited to remain afterwards for refreshments and a poster exhibition, where staff could find out more information.
