Supporting pre-eclampsia research

Action on Pre-eclampsia’s Walker Redman Award aims to support post-doctoral students’ research, knowledge and understanding of pre-eclampsia.

Are you a post-doctoral student in the United Kingdom?

Are you interested in travelling to further your research and understanding of Pre-eclampsia? Could This Award Help You? Action on Pre-eclampsia is the leading UK charity supporting families and researchers in trying to understand this condition.  We support hundreds of families each year and make a significant contribution towards patient involvement in research. We want to support your research and will make two awards of £500 each year to help fund travel to improve your knowledge and understanding of pre-eclampsia.

About the Award

The Walker Redman scholarship programme was founded as a way to support students and help them  over the financial ‘finish line’ and to make life a little easier. It is intended to be support, not to fund every part of their plans. The awarding committee will be looking at the realistic nature of the proposals, the deliverability, what support they have and the possibility of putting something new and original into the jigsaw of how we solve pre-eclampsia.
