A significant grant of up to £600,000 for an immunotherapy or immunology based research project is available to improve outcomes and transform treatment for women with ovarian cancer. Ovarian Cancer Action want to hear from talented scientists from around the world who share our ambition to see women with ovarian cancer benefit from advances in immunotherapy. Applicants should have conducted independent research in the field of immunotherapy or immunology and ovarian cancer. Applications from wider experts in the field of immunotherapy and immunology are welcome, however a co-applicant should be included whose specialty is ovarian cancer.
2019 L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science UK & Ireland Fellowship Awards Programme
The 2019 L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science UK & Ireland Fellowship Awards Programme provides five outstanding female early-career scientists with a bursary of £15,000. The fellowship awards are open to female early-career researchers working in the field of life and physical sciences, engineering, mathematics and computer sciences. They have been designed to provide flexible and practical financial support to ensure these women further their research and careers. With the flexible grant, winners may choose to spend their fellowship on buying scientific equipment, paying for childcare, travel costs or indeed whatever they need to continue their research. In addition to financial support, each year past and present fellows receive training and networking opportunities supported by L’Oréal. The application deadline is midday, 1 February 2019.
Projects must be scientifically excellent and within VALIDATE’s remit of accelerating vaccine R&D for TB, melioidosis, leish and/or leprosy. Projects should lead to relevant and useful data for the field or produce pilot data that will lead to a larger grant application to an external funder. Awards are open to all VALIDATE Investigators and Associates and must include collaborators from at least two different Institutes. Affiliate members who were at the VALIDATE 2nd Annual Meeting Ideas Laboratory may also be collaborators in this round.
Training grants of up to £3000 are available to help VALIDATE Associates (post-doctoral researchers) take advantage of training opportunities that will contribute to their professional development. This can include (but is not limited to): attendance at courses or workshops, laboratory exchanges, and work shadowing.
The scheme pilots a new mechanism for NHS consultants with a PhD or MD (or equivalent higher research degree) who are not currently research active to participate in collaborative high-quality research partnerships with established leading biomedical researchers.
