Meet Team GC Connect - they are on a mission to maximise the global impact of Cambridge research by creating opportunities for researchers to apply their expertise in the context of international development.

 

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.

These researchers work in teams on projects aimed at finding solutions for some of the world’s most pressing problems.

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 nine of the most exceptional postdoctoral researchers working in Cambridge, the 2018-19 cohort works across the biomedical sciences, from cancer research and infectious diseases, to the treatment of neurological disorders.

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.

The 2018-19 cohort is currently working in two teams on two separate global challenge projects.
