Programme led by four of the UK’s top Universities
The Wellcome Trust has awarded £5M over the next five years to allow the Universities of Manchester, Leeds, Newcastle and Sheffield to combine their strengths in biomedical and health research and create the 4ward North Clinical PhD Academy.
The Academy, in collaboration with The Francis Crick Institute in London, will:
- award and oversee 25 Wellcome Trust fellowships to allow the best clinical trainees from around the UK undertake a PhD.
- provide support for a far larger number of fellows through applications to the MRC and other research funders.
- provide additional bursaries and awards to help the next generation of clinician researchers make the all-important transition to a successful postdoctoral research career.
