As an Assistant Research Funding Development Manager, I am looking to increase research income for the Faculty of Medical Sciences.

Please contact me if you would like; to discuss available funding opportunities, support with grant writing, help with arranging a mock panel interview or have any other research funding enquiry. If you are an RCUK applicant I can help you with the; (Lay) Summary, Impact Summary, Pathways to Impact and other sections of the Je-S application form.

I can also help produce GANTT charts, organograms and dash boards for grant applications. I have examples that can be provided as templates or for inspiration.

I would also like to hear from research groups and individual researchers regarding finding funding for their work and areas of research.
