CALL FOR oxford-celgene fellowships now live
This prestigious 3-year Fellowship aims to stimulate new scientific discovery and translation and to facilitate skills and people transfer between researchers in academia and industry.

Once projects are awarded, recipients are assigned Celgene supervisors who help to drive project progress.
Applicants should submit their project proposal online via the Internal Research Award Management System (IRAMS) using the standard application form available on the webpage or through IRAMS.
