The Daniel Turnberg Travel Fellowships give early-career biomedical and medical researchers the chance to meet leading researchers in their field, further their research experience and learn new techniques. This scheme aims to build research links and develop ideas for longer-term collaborations between the UK and the Middle East.

To keep up to date with news and round openings subscribe to our mailing list or follow us on LinkedIn and Twitter. 

We have also set up a LinkedIn group to help you network with other researchers in order to establish research collaborations suitable for the Daniel Turnberg UK/Middle East Travel Fellowships scheme. 

About the scheme

The scheme was established by the Academy in partnership with Lord and Lady Turnberg in memory of their late son Daniel Turnberg, a doctor and researcher with a keen interest in fostering links between the UK and the Middle East.

The Daniel Turnberg Travel Fellowships encourage researchers to experience an alternative research environment, learn new techniques and develop ideas for future collaborations. They are aimed primarily at early- and mid-career scientists, particularly those just embarking on a career in research. Since its launch in 2008, the scheme has awarded over 300 Travel Fellowships to researchers from all countries eligible to apply.
