Translational Funding Event – Thursday 10th July

Unlock the translational potential of your research

On Thursday 10th July, the College of Medical & Dental Sciences are hosting a Translational Funding Event to raise awareness around what translational funding is available, which may appropriate for you, and at what stage you should be considering external translational funding schemes.
