ACTION MEDICAL RESEARCH TRAINING FELLOWSHIPS
For over 50 years, Action Medical Research has created a healthier future by
supporting a broad spectrum of medical research of the highest quality. Our
objective is to prevent disease and disability and to alleviate physical disability
with an emphasis on clinical research or research at the clinical/basic science
interface. From 2009 our support will focus on child health which will include
problems affecting pregnancy, childbirth, babies, children and young adults.
Applications for these prestigious Research Training Fellowships are invited
from medical and science graduates of any discipline who wish to do research
relevant to the aims of the charity and our new focus. We welcome
applications from clinicians, scientists, bioengineers, research nurses and allied
health professionals. The awards provide the opportunity for up to 3 years
(salary and consumables) to train in research techniques and methodology
applied to subjects relevant to the overall objectives of the Charity. The
scheme aims to build the research base throughout the UK by training the
research leaders of the future.
