Translational Funding Event (c. July 2015)
We are already thinking about our next annual Translational Funding Event within the College of MDS, where we hope to welcome both researchers and support staff from across the university to raise awareness about the range of external translational funding available and to highlight unique partnership opportunities. In addition, we will be running speed dating 1-2-1s with the funders to help individual researchers build relationships with a real person within a funding organisation.

Last year we hosted speakers from BHF, BBSRC, CRUK, MRC and WT and hope to welcome even more in the summer of 2015.  To suggest a funder of interest to invite or to register your interest in securing 1-2-1 time, please do let us know – Claire Fenlon / / 46804 – and keep an eye out for further details in the near future.
