The Post-Doctoral Career Development Fellowship funded by Action A-T supports postdoctoral researchers in the UK working on Ataxia Telangiectasia (A-T) to become independent group leaders. Applicants should be working on A-T in the following areas:
- nucleic acid therapies (NATs) for the management or treatment of A-T
- the development of “read-through” therapeutics for patients with premature STOP codons
- novel delivery mechanisms for the targeting of nucleic acid therapies to tissues affected by A-T
- the regulation of the ATM pathway using NATs to understand DNA repair mechanisms and susceptibility to cancer
Applications with an interdisciplinary approach are particularly welcome. Funding of up to 250,000 GBP is available for projects spanning up to 2 years (no indirect costs). Preliminary submissions are due on January 9, 2023 and invited full applications are due on March 6, 2023.
