Call for applications: closing date Wednesday 24 January

The Auckland Medical Research Foundation is now calling for applications for the following grants:

  • Gavin and Ann Kellaway Medical Research Fellowship. Supporting senior medically qualified, or established medical research persons, who would gain value from further study abroad, or in furthering their research expertise and knowledge at an approved overseas research institution.
  • Sir Douglas Robb Memorial Fund. Support for small projects which would normally have a medical background, but which need not be strictly "medical research". For example, the fund has been used to enhance medical libraries, to fund overseas speakers at medical conferences, and to assist in publication of papers relating to medical research.
  • Sir Harcourt Caughey Award. Up to $25,000 for recipients who may (i) be a graduate of New Zealand who, having trained in research overseas, is returning to New Zealand to a part-time appointment in Auckland and who has sufficient experience in research to deserve part-time support (or similar to a part-time Senior Research Fellowship) in such research; or (ii) be a New Zealand medical graduate in Auckland who is deserving of assistance to train in a specific field overseas and to undertake research in that area, especially where there is a local deficiency in expertise in that field; or (iii) be sufficiently prestigious in a particular field of medical knowledge and/or research to visit Auckland, normally for 3-4 weeks, to foster interest and research in that specialty.
  • Travel Grant. Support for medical researchers who wish to present their research at a meeting or conference. Funds may also be provided to support a training course on research methods and/or for visiting a laboratory to learn a new research technique.

Applications close on Wednesday 24 January.
