Meet our Research Training Fellows

The charity has run its own prestigious Research Training Fellowship scheme for more than 40 years, funding 174 fellowships to date at a total value of over £12 million. This scheme supports promising doctors and researchers early in their careers and develops future leaders in children’s research.

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 are proud that some of the leading children’s researchers today were Action Research Training Fellows.
