  • What Wellcome say about this webinar:

Wellcome supports health professionals through schemes such as our PhD programme for health professionals and through Open Mode funding within Discovery Research. We understand that progression in academia as a health professional can be complex, and this webinar will provide you with information about our open mode schemes, which support researchers at different stages of their post-doctoral careers: the Early Career Awards, the Career Development Awards, and the Discovery Awards. We will cover eligibility, remit and details of the assessment process. We'll share examples of AHPs who have been successful in the schemes and provide space for you to ask the questions that will support a future application.

Wellcome is an independent charitable foundation, supporting research to solve the urgent health challenges facing everyone. We fund Discovery Research to transform life, health and wellbeing. We are discipline agnostic, supporting researchers to take on important questions relating to health and disease, with creative approaches drawing from all sorts of disciplines, from the life sciences, physical and engineering sciences through to humanities and social sciences. We are open to both hypothesis-driven research, and also that focused on tools and technology development.
