UK and Ireland Fellowship Programme

Welcome

The Gilead UK & Ireland Fellowship Programme started in 2009. The aim of the Programme is to support local innovation and best practice in patient care in HIV, viral hepatitis, oncology, respiratory and invasive fungal disease. The Programme invites applications from healthcare or allied professionals who are seeking funding for a project that aligns with the goals of the Gilead UK & Ireland Fellowship Programme.

Applicants are required to demonstrate how their project meets the specified criteria in order to be awarded funding. Successful applicants are expected to communicate progress of their project, and to present their findings at the end of the funding period.

Since its inception, the Gilead UK & Ireland Fellowship Programme has supported 134 projects in the areas of HIV, viral hepatitis, respiratory and invasive fungal disease. The first 5 years of the Programme have already left an important legacy within the research areas funded. Further details of successful applications can be found here

As the Gilead UK & Ireland Fellowship Programme evolves and expands in 2015, it will be inviting applications in the area of oncology for the first time. It is hoped that the 2015 Programme will once again be able to fund some innovative and exciting projects in HIV, viral hepatitis, respiratory and invasive fungal disease, as well as setting the foundations for a long-term contribution to oncology.
