With funding from the NIHR, the Oxford BRC supports hundreds of medical researchers who are translating basic science into tangible clinical benefits for NHS patients. As well as world-leading academics, we also support researchers starting out on their careers. Here we profile five researchers for whom BRC funding has been vital in progressing their careers.
“Translational research is what really interests me”
“This research fellowship allows me to train in surgery as well as conduct research”
“Whatever I’m doing, there needs to be a connection between my skills and a real-time impact on people’s lives”
“I can apply for smaller grants that make a big difference”
“It’s good to have a strong female role model”
