The Faculty of Medicine Research Strategy team supports the work of the Dean and Vice Dean (Research) in developing and implementing strategies and policies to grow the Faculty’s research funding portfolio. We are a busy team of three with a broad array of research management and administration experience: Dr Des Walsh (Director of Research Strategy), Dr Sarah Wagstaffe (Head of Research Strategy) and Dr Kimberley Trim (Research Strategy Coordinator).
Responding to a continuously changing research landscape, we work with research groups to help develop collaborative, multidisciplinary research activity and facilitate the development of institutional relationships with major biomedical research funders. We also strive to ensure the Faculty of Medicine is central to research developments within College but also to exert influence on research strategy at national and international level.
Always available to discuss your ideas, we can work with you to explore potential funding opportunities and to ensure you develop the strongest possible application with the best chance of success. Whether you are trying to find potential collaborators, looking for insight into major funder strategies, exploring routes to research translation or are looking to develop a cross-disciplinary research theme to address a major global challenge – we are here to help you.
