Published on


  • BPNA

As part of the next Research Training Fellowship call in 2021, Action Medical Research and the British Paediatric Neurology Association (BPNA) are working together to offer a joint fellowship award in 2022.

The proposed research must be related to clinical neurology and/or neuroscience, including neurodisability and neurodevelopment.

Fellowship applicants for this joint award are expected to be pre-doctoral trainee clinicians and will either already hold a UK or Irish specialist training post in Paediatric Neurology, or be planning to apply for a specialist training post in Paediatric Neurology or Neurodisability after completion of a PhD.

Both the proposed application and fellowship applicant must meet the BPNA charitable aims

Applications for this joint award will be considered in open competition through the Action Medical Research peer review system as part of its response mode Research Training Fellowship round considering applications across conditions affecting pregnancy, babies, children and young people.

Applications may be made for up to three years full time funding to £250,000 per award through the Action Medical Research website and our normal outline application form.

The above set of guidelines is aimed to help applicants and is in no way a comprehensive set of rules and regulations.
