Guts UK Derek Butler Fellowship (Upper GI)

The Guts UK Derek Butler Fellowship is a three year award for research in the sphere of upper gastrointestinal tract diseases and conditions. This grant call is now closed and is planned to reopen in 2020/21.

This is a 3-year full-time fellowship for research into diseases of the upper gastrointestinal tract including cancer.  Research should be on the oesophagus, stomach or duodenum.  Studies on the liver and pancreas are excluded as funded elsewhere.  Preference will be given to candidates who intend to pursue research in the future. In making the award, emphasis will be placed not only on the project itself, but also on the candidate’s potential and the quality of the training proposed.

The total value of the fellowship is £210,000 to cover salary costs and consumables over 3 years. The next grant call is planned for 2020/21.
