The Amber Young Burns Research Fellowship

We are delighted to launch the Amber Young Burns Research Fellowship - our new pump priming burns research fellowship intended to support early career burns researchers.

This Fellowship is made possible by a generous legacy from the estate of Professor Amber Young, an inspirational and much missed researcher and clinician.

About the Fellowship

The Fellowship aims to support high-quality, clinically focused research aimed at improving outcomes for children and young people affected by burns. The emphasis of the Fellowship is on ‘pump priming’, proof of principle, and feasibility studies that can demonstrably lead to larger applications from established grant makers such as the NIHR, MRC, etc.

This year, one fellowship of £20,000 is available. Full information about the Terms of Reference of the Fellowship is available to be viewed below.
