The BMRC and MERI are supporting a Daphne Jackson Trust fellow, Dr Louise Vickers, working with Dr Christine Le Maitre (BMRC) and Professor Chris Sammon (MERI) on a biomaterials project. Fellows normally carry out their research part-time over 2 years, in a university or research establishment in the UK. The Fellowships are flexible and include a tailored training programme designed to update skills and knowledge and give support for the return to research.
