Translational Research Fellowship 2020
On this page:
The Irish Cancer Society is now accepting Expression of Interest applications for the Translational Research Fellowship Scheme 2020.
The objective of the Irish Cancer Society Translational Research Fellowship Scheme 2020 is to support excellent early-stage (0-4 years’ experience post-PhD) cancer researchers to develop as independent researchers in their chosen area of translational cancer research. It is expected that the successful fellow will plan on pursuing a long-term career in academic research.
Translational research can be defined as “bench to bedside” or patient-focused research, whereby the aim of the research is to translate existing knowledge about cancer biology into techniques and tools that will accelerate progress towards patient benefit.
The maximum funding granted for a Fellowship is €223,000 over three years. Applicants may also apply for a further €7,000 for mobility funding to travel to a national or an international research institution for up to a maximum of six months during the Fellowship.
