The Wellcome Trust has funded a £5.1 million Strategic award in Medical Mycology and Fungal Immunology to members of the Aberdeen Fungal Group. Through this Aberdeen will act as the hub of a pan-UK network of collaborations that will involve many of the major institutions that are invested in this area. It represents the single largest award in this field and is testament to the strength and depth that the College enjoys in this field.
The WTSA will fund a number of international studentships, postdoctoral fellows and clinical PhDs to stimulate cross-disciplinary research and training and build capacity in this field. Details of the objectives for the award, collaborators, as well as opportunities for new Clinincal PhD positions, a Clinical Readership and a new MRes programme in Aberdeen can be found by following the link below.
