Academy of Medical Science Springboard Success

Brian Hudson was recently awarded a £100k Springboard Award from the Academy of Medical Sciences to explore the role of fatty acids in mediating communication between metabolism and inflammation. This scheme, supported by a consortium including the Wellcome Trust, British Heart Foundation, Government Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy and Diabetes UK, provides new academics with career development opportunities and access to the academy’s acclaimed mentoring scheme. The funding will be used to help Brian establish his research group, funding a technician for two years, while allowing him to generate new tools, cell lines, expertise and data that will support future funding applications to the MRC and BBSRC.
