Research interests and supervisors based at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine
The Liverpool Centre draws upon a diverse range of academic expertise from our partner institutions and the Centre's Board Members have a variety of research interests. As a result, a broad range of potential projects are available for development into competitive fellowship proposals. Applicants to the Wellcome Trust Clinical PhD Programme are encouraged to develop their own project ideas as part of the first year of this fellowship, although there are a number of potential projects that can serve as the basis for development of new research proposals.
If you are interested in developing a research proposal please look at this list of potential supervisors and projects, or contact us to discuss your own ideas.
As of September 2015, the Wellcome Trust Liverpool Glasgow Centre for Global Health Research has recently launched two schemes, designed to support talented individuals who wish to develop competitive applications for Wellcome Trust Fellowships.
The Flexible Funding Pot (FFP) can support short targeted programmes of activities, including pre-planned meetings, preliminary data gathering & site visits. The Placement Scheme, intended primarily for applicants from developing nations, supports high quality individuals to conduct placements at selected research locations, so as to build their experience & skills, in order to increase their competitiveness when applying for Wellcome Trust fellowships through the Centre.
Both schemes are now open to candidates with academic supervisor associated with the Centre. If you do not yet have a WTCGHR academic supervisor, but wish to express an interest in working with Centre to build your potential for overseas clinical & non-clinical basic science research, please contact us using 'contact us' form.
