Celgene is a global biopharmaceutical company that uses cutting-edge technology and innovative science to discover new medicines for patients. In partnership the Oxford Medical Sciences Division, Celgene has co-developed and provided support for a Translational Research Fellowship Programme. The goals of this scheme are to stimulate new scientific discovery and translation and to facilitate skills transfer between researchers in academia and industry.
This programme offers fellows an opportunity to gain exposure to the field of commercial drug discovery and development. They will have an assigned company mentor and where appropriate be encouraged to spend some time based in Celgene's laboratories.
Funding will be awarded to Oxford Principal Investigators to support 3 year fellowship projects for early career researchers that demonstrate a clear translational value to the advancement of therapeutics. Three to four awards are made annually.
