We are pleased to announce that between the ACORN 2015 allocation, and additional support provided through the Faculty of Health, that offers to support the recruitment of six PhD students has been made. Fifteen proposals were submitted, seeking £339K in ACORN funding. Importantly, these proposals were leveraged against almost £550K of additional support. In total, ISTM and the Faculty of Health have committed almost £120K to the ACORN 2015 process, recognising the high quality of the applications made.
The successful students will join the research teams led by Tony Curtis, Martin Fisher, Nick Forsyth, Monte Gates, Jan Kuiper and Pensee Wu.
