Two of the UK’s top clinicians have been awarded fellowships by the independent healthcare charity the Health Foundation, working with the Academy of Medical Sciences. The Fellowships support translational research that will make a long-term difference to the quality of patient care.
Dr Estee Torok, from the University of Cambridge, and Dr Rina Dutta, King’s College London have each been awarded £750,000 as part of the Clinician Scientist Fellowships. The Fellowships will enable them to carry out academic research alongside clinical practice. Both academics will have leadership training provided by the Health Foundation, and mentoring support from the Academy of Medical Sciences.
