The principal aim of the Barbara Mawer Fellowship is to enable New Investigators (NI) (see criteria below) to spend time in another research group to learn a new technique or otherwise benefit from a specific expertise that is not currently available in their host laboratory/institution. A secondary aim of this scheme is to give NIs the opportunity to personally apply for funding, and gain experience of the grant writing process.
The Fellowship is intended primarily to fund travel and subsistence expenses for the duration of the visit; however, a small amount of lab-based consumables may be included in the application (if applicable). The total amount available per year is up to £3000 – which may be split between multiple applicants at the discretion of the BRS Committee.
