International Development Research @ Cambridge


The Academy of Medical Sciences is one of the UK national academies, whose mission is to promote medical research and its translation into benefits for society. These awards support short visits that seek to facilitate collaboration between the most talented researchers in the field of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in the UK and India.

For Professors or senior group leaders based at a UK research institution and with suitable host in India, this scheme supports UK researchers wishing to visit India, to develop long-term collaborations in the highly-important area of antimicrobial resistance research. 

The scheme enables the undertaking of a 1-2 week lecture tour of India with the potential inclusion of laboratory visits. 

The scheme will cover the costs of UK-India travel and internal transfers, accommodation and subsistence, up to a maximum of £5000. The proposed visit should take place within 10 months of the date of award.
