Student Fellowship

STUDENT FELLOWSHIP

Supporting the researchers of the future means that new, potentially life-changing diabetes research is being funded and encouraged. Research proposals were reviewed and applicants were chosen based on a clear project outline with objectives that complement the ongoing diabetes research activities of the Supervisor. Awards are for a one-year term.
