International Development Research @ Cambridge


The Rosetrees Trust seeks to foster interdisciplinary research work in tackling medical issues that affect significant proportions of the population. This prize is intended to support a collaborative project between Medicine and either Chemistry or Physics.


Applications are now open for the Rosetrees Trust Interdisciplinary Prize 2018 to stimulate collaborative research between Medicine and either Chemistry or Physics. The aim of the collaborative studies that bring together researchers from these disciplines ought to be the ambition to achieve breakthrough results that have real potential to improve human health. The proposals can relate to any disease or medical condition which affects a significant proportion of the population.

Proposals are invited for projects with a value of up to £250,000 over 3 years, which can be used to support any aspect of the proposed research.
