The Oxford BRC is delighted to announce the appointment of seven new Senior Research Fellows.

The NIHR Oxford Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) is based at the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and run in partnership with the University of Oxford. Biomedical Research Centres are part of the Government's initiative to improve the translation of basic scientific developments into clinical benefits for patients and to reinforce the position of the UK as a global leader in healthcare related research.

The Oxford BRC has appointed seven new Senior Research Fellows. They were chosen from an extremely strong field of 47 applicants from across the scientific and clinical community because they demonstrated that their research was high impact and of high quality. They were also able to demonstrate leadership, independence and collaboration with other research groups.

Simon Kyle is a research scientist in our Sleep and Circadian Neuroscience Institute whose research focuses on the aetiology of chronic sleep disruption, the interplay between sleep and cognitive health, and the development of mechanistically-grounded treatments for sleep disorders. (Neurological Conditions).

The aim of the fellowships is to support individuals to advance an independent research area which will enhance BRC research in Oxford and strengthen future BRC funding applications.

The fellows will receive an award of £10,000 per year for a period of two years that can be used flexibly to facilitate their translational research programme and career development.

They will also have the chance to take part in a series of masterclasses and network with principal BRC fellows.
