Borysiewicz Biomedical Sciences Fellowships

The Borysiewicz Biomedical Sciences Fellowship Programme

Postdoctoral researchers are the engine that power research in the biomedical sciences and are in a unique position to shape the future. The Borysiewicz Biomedical Sciences Fellowship has been developed in honour of Sir Leszek Borysiewicz, a pioneer in the biomedical sciences, who as Vice-Chancellor of the University led and shaped the development of key provisions for Cambridge’s postdoc community. 

The Borysiewicz Fellowship takes some of the best Cambridge postdocs and develops them into motivated, strategic future leaders ready to pursue a range of global questions and problems. The programme provides a unique mixture of purposeful and outcome-driven engagement opportunities for postdocs both within and outside their area of expertise, which develops their skills as leaders and leads to a chance to pursue truly independent work on novel ideas.

It is the aim of the Borysiewicz Fellowships to provide career enhancement to support outstanding researchers seeking to shape the future for the betterment of society.

Selected as the six most exceptional postdoctoral researchers working in Cambridge, the 2019-20 cohort works across the biomedical sciences and health policy, from obesity and cardiovascular conditions to HIV and cancer, using Artificial Intelligence, medical technology, Mathematics and experimental work.

The programme enables these researchers to focus on a range of global challenges in addition to their primary research, as well as undertaking a programme of leadership and entrepreneurship training.
