Medical Research Scotland sponsors Daphne Jackson Fellows returning to biomedical research

Medical Research Scotland (MRS) is committed to supporting individuals wishing to return to biomedical research in Scotland and we are delighted that MRS will be sponsoring up to three Daphne Jackson Fellows each year on an ongoing basis.

Three MRS sponsored Fellows will begin their return to research in Scotland this autumn. Read on to find out more.

Dr Dominique Meunier will return to the MRC Centre for Regenerative Medicine at the University of Edinburgh where she will be investigating how cell production is regulated in the thymus; an important organ for immune responses that degenerates with age. Dr Alexandra Di Domineco will return to the Roslin Institute, which is also linked to the University of Edinburgh. Her Fellowship will allow her to explore how cancer stem cells are regulated in bone cancers called osteorsarcoma; a common cause of bone tumours in humans and dogs. Dr Natalia Goronkova’s Fellowship will be hosted by the University of Strathclyde, and she will explore how silk can be used to deliver stem cells to the brains of people recovering from stroke.

The next round of applications for MRS sponsored Daphne Jackson Fellowships is open. Further information can be found on our current opportunities page.
