Dapo is Early Career Researcher at Newcastle University.

Being my first successful grant application as an early career researcher, this BMA foundation award is a stepping stone towards becoming an independent/principal researcher and academic.  It will provide me with a platform to continue to grow professionally and personally and gain invaluable research and project management skills.”


- Oladapo Ogunbayo

Delegates met at BMA house to celebrate the awards on 5 December. The BMA Foundation for Medical Research is a charity that supports around £600 000 for a wide range of research areas. It has been supporting medical research since 1839 through awarding grants and prizes that encourage medical research.

The awards help early career researchers onto the research ladder with seed funding. Many winners go on to secure larger grants from bigger funders.  To celebrate this, each year we host an awards ceremony for the annual grant winners, as well as inviting back some of our past winners to talk about the impact BMA Foundation grants have had on their career and research field. 

Oladapo is recipient of seedcorn funds from the School.
