EBI help to INSPIRE the next generation of medical researchers
29 April 2015
The University’s medical faculties (Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry, and Faculty of Medical and Veterinary Sciences) have been awarded another round of INSPIRE funding from the Academy of Medical Sciences (AMS).
Funding was originally awarded in 2013 and over the past two years Bristol has supported 24 vacation studentships and a range of prize awards for the best research projects, as well as providing research ‘taster’ opportunities for 180 students.
The University of Bristol has been awarded a further £10,000 from the AMS and the Wellcome Trust to extend its programme of INSPIRE activities over the next two years. This has been generously matched by the contributions from the Deans of both faculties along with the Elizabeth Blackwell Institute to a total of £35,000.
