This fund was established to honour the memory of the late Professor Graham Wilson.  The fund is held by the Greater Glasgow and Clyde NHS Endowment Funds Office and offers support to junior members of staff and students who wish to visit a centre in the UK or abroad to learn specific clinical or research techniques, particularly those transferable to Glasgow.  Professor Wilson’s principal interests were in clinical pharmacology, hypertension, endocrinology/metabolism, gastroenterology and medical education.  More than one scholarship is available each year, each having a maximum value of around £1,000.

Well done to the 2017-2018 Graham Wilson Travel Fellowship recipients who presented the outcomes of their visits to a variety of national and international laboratories at a special Advances in Research (AIR) session on the 2nd of May 2018. The session was chaired by our Head of College, Professor Anna Dominiczak and the awards were presented by Dr John Wilson and Mrs Rosemary O’Connor, two of Professor Graham Wilson’s children.

Last year’s recipients, Nina Denver, Tuuli Hietamies, Karla Bianca Neves, Josie Van Kralingen presented their experiences and met over lunch before the presentations.
