Meet our Research Training Fellows

We’ve been running our prestigious Research Training Fellowship scheme for more than 40 years. In this time we have funded 176 fellowships with a total value of over £13 million.

The scheme supports and develops promising doctors and researchers early in their careers: as Research Training Fellows, these high-fliers carry out a key piece of research to help children and undertake training to develop their research expertise.

We’re proud that some of the leading children’s researchers today were supported with a Research Training Fellowship from Action – and we’re also proud to present our current Research Training Fellows.
