Announced last night at at our joint event with the Chief Scientist Office (CSO) at Scottish Parliament, one of our clinical research fellows has been awarded follow-on funding from the CSO. 

Dr Yvonne Chun, University of Edinburgh,began her clinical research with one of our Princess Margaret Research Development Fellowships. Her new CSO Clinical Academic Fellowship will allow her to continue her work investigating post-stroke anxiety.

Dr William Whiteley, who leads on the Princess Margaret Research Development programme at the University of Edinburgh, says:

“This award supports clinical fellows to develop skills and gather pilot work to put them in a strong position for competitive research training fellowships from large funders, such as the CSO. It has also supported the annual Edinburgh Stroke Winter School. The School offers intensive training in the methods of clinical stroke research, and so far 19 Fellows have been through the program.”
