The 2020 Isherwood Pump Priming Grant was awarded to Dr Aysha Luis, from a very high quality field of applicants. You can find more details on her project below.
Details for the upcoming prize will be posted in due course.
Background: The award is dedicated in honour of Professor Ian Isherwood (1931-2018) and his pioneering work in neuroradiology.
Aims: The aim of the grant is to provide funding for a junior trainee or early years consultant to undertake an early phase, proof-of-concept study; typically, with a view to a subsequent substantive grant application. The research should relate specifically to a branch of neuroradiology.
Eligibility: Applicants must be members of the BSNR in good standing in the relevant membership category. Trainee members of the BSNR (associate members) are encouraged, but must be supervised by a BSNR member in good standing. In addition, full members of the BSNR holding appointments of any grade (but usually within 5 years of their first consultant level appointment) are also eligible to apply. Funding will be to support new work. Retrospective funding of completed work will not be considered.
Funding: A maximum of £10,000 will be awarded to any individual project.
