Wellcome Fellowship success for BRC researcher

Professor Neil Hanley, who was recruited to the Manchester Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) in June 2008, has won a prestigious Wellcome Trust Senior Fellowship in Clinical Science.

The award, worth approximately £1.4m over five years, provides support for clinical investigators to further develop their research potential and to establish themselves as leading investigators in clinical academic medicine. Fellowships are awarded annually to candidates of exceptional ability and outstanding promise. Neil's fellowship follows on from previous holders Professor Graeme Black, current Director of the Biomedical Research Centre and Professor Paul Bishop. It will allow Neil to continue his group's research into a cell-based therapy for diabetes.
