The Physics of Medicine (2020-2023) is generously funded by The Rosetrees Trust. The new partnership between the Rosetrees Trust and Physics of Life is intended to significantly enhance clinical participation into the Physics of Life network. The aim is to create a sustainable, clinically-focused, Physics of Medicine network community - as part of the wider Physics of Life network by delivering a 3-year programme of multidisciplinary workshops linked to major clinical and biological challenges.
Physics of Medicine will therefore deliver a short series of 'Rosetrees Interdisciplinary Challenge Workshops' over the next 3 years covering key clinical challenges from the perspective of the Physics of Life, including but not limited to;
Metastasis and resistance
Joint degeneration and
In each case, the workshop will be jointly organised with cognate national research charities and other funders including NIHR, UKRI and the Wellcome Trust.
Any UK based researcher is able to apply for £5k worth of funding to deliver one of our Rosetrees Interdisciplinary Challenge Workshops, either as outlined above or with a new idea of interest to Physics of Medicine.
The £5k of funding can be used to hire venues, organise dinners, lunches, pay for speaker travel. During previous events, the network has also worked hard to help identify partner funders.
All funding applications need to be cross-disciplinary, showing the potnetial to attract physicists, biologists and clinicicians.
In addition to financial support, the network is able to provide organisational support (organising registration, webpages, marketting, financial budgetting, event management).
These workshops can be held at any UK based location.
