Maria Fernandez


Research Coordinator

I am Research Coordinator in the department and deal with all grant applications, award set-up and assist in the management of those awards.

We have approximately 200 funding applications per year and I assist our PI's and researchers with grant application submissions to over 40 funding bodies, national and international, from £3,000 to £5,000,000. I also assist with project budgets according to the funding body guidelines and can call upon my own experience of 14 years research and lab management, and 5 years research group administration to assist with project planning. I coordinate successful award set-ups and manage grants post award in accordance with the Sponsor and University procedures. I work with academic, clinical, research and administrative colleagues in the department, colleagues in other departments within the university and central services and many external agencies.  In particular I work closely with the department’s Finance and Personnel Officers and Student Administrator, Medical Sciences Division Research Services and the RS European Office.
