Wellcome Trust Visit

5 January 2017

We are delighted to announce that the Wellcome Trust will be visiting the University of Kent on 23rd February 2017.

The Trust last visited Kent six years ago and in that time their funding schemes have changed considerably, with more emphasis on multi-disciplinary, collaborative research.

Wellcome is the largest non-governmental funder in the UK and supports health research from the sciences, humanities and social sciences.

The event is suitable for academics, researchers, PhD students and grant support staff from all three faculties.

Please see the preliminary agenda below and register to attend here.

 If you can't attend but are interested, do get in touch with Dr Carolyn Barker via email.  We would be happy to forward any questions to the Wellcome Trust staff or arrange further meetings.
