CResearch fellowambridge Clinical Research Fellowships

Fostering the future leaders of clinical research

The Cambridge Clinical Research Fellowships scheme has supported outstanding doctors, nurses, midwives and allied health professionals in the early stages of the clinical academic research training pathway. The scheme offers intensive research training in an exceptional environment and provides an entry point into a career in clinical academia.  It provides salary support and a consumable allowance for up to one year during which time it is anticipated that successful candidates will apply for nationally competitive fellowships, with a view to completing a PhD.

Since 2007, Cambridge Clinical Research Fellowships have been supported by Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust, NIHR Cambridge Biomedical Research Centre and the Evelyn Trust. In 2016, they were also supported by co-funding from the Isaac Newton Trust  and a generous gift to ACT from the family of Phillip Greenwood and we are delighted this will continue in 2017. 

The 2017 round of Fellowships for medics is now closed and will not reopen until 2018. Further information is available by contacting Claire Teager via

Fellowships for nurses, midwives and allied health professionals will open later in 2017. For details contact Professor Christi Deaton via
