The Institute is well advanced in the process of appointing holders to 10 new Research Fellowships. These are aimed at enabling outstanding early-stage scientists to develop their own research programme, within the remit of the Institute. The Fellowships, which will be awarded for a maximum of five years, will be held in association with an existing IAH Research Group but the Fellow will be considered to be independent, new investigator. Fellows will be in a position to apply for additional external research grants. "It is our expectation that fellows meeting the required standards and in an area of science of high priority for delivery of the Institute’s strategy will become Group Leaders at the end of their Fellowships," says Professor David Paton, Director of Science. The Institute already has three IAH Research Fellows.
The 10 additional Fellowships are:
- Joint IAH & Glasgow Fellowship In RNA Virus Phylogenetics
- Fellowship In Host Genetic Diversity & Immunity To Viruses
- Fellowship In Epigenetics & Translational Regulation
- Fellowship In Avian Influenza Research
- Fellowship In Avian Viral Immunology
- Fellowship In Virus Cell Interactions/ Cell Biology
- Fellowship In Mucosal Immunology
- Fellowship In Pathogenesis & Transmission Biology
- Fellowship In Arbovirus Immunology
- Fellowship In Mosquito Entomology
