Wellbeing of Women-Royal College of Physicians Partnership Entry-level Research Scholarships (ELS) provide a single candidate with up to £20,000 for research lasting normally up to one year. Funds are for directly incurred research costs and may include a salary contribution. The research must be undertaken in the UK.
The awards will fund pre-doctoral physicians in a basic science, clinical or translational research aimed to improve outcomes for pregnant women with medical disorders, or who develop gestational syndromes.
Awards are intended to provide ‘pump-priming’ funds to enable physicians to be exposed to a research environment and to obtain pilot data that will enhance an application for a clinical research fellowship (PhD or MD). Applicants would normally be new to the research discipline and will not previously have been heavily involved in substantial or funded research projects.
These awards seeks to support research that will improve the medical management of acute and chronic disease during pregnancy, mindful upon the effects on the developing fetus. Research into the aetiology, management and consequences of maternal gestational syndromes is also welcome.
