We recognise the importance of a mixed economy in funding for clinical research training and so we have entered a partnership with the Medical Research Council (MRC) to increase the funding available for clinical PhDs via the MRC Clinical Research Training Fellowship scheme.
By providing additional standalone fellowships in partnership with the MRC we can ensure there are funding opportunities for excellent individuals, wherever in the UK they are based. There will be more details about this scheme on the MRC website in due course.
