How we work: our plans
The Kennedy Institute, Oxford
We will continue to support the Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology and help to develop the quality and application of its scientific research. There will be a review the research and resources supported by the Trust and monitor outcomes of the research.
We will invite applications from selected universities for a new Kennedy Trust Senior Research Fellowship. The Trust is reviewing its research funding strategy and priorities for the coming years.
Arthritis Therapy Acceleration Programme (A-TAP)
Kennedy Trust Senior Research Fellowship
Following a highly competitive call for proposals, the Trust recently announced the award of the first Kennedy Trust Senior Research Fellowship to Dr John Grainger at the University of Manchester’s Division of Infection, Immunity & Respiratory Medicine. Starting in March 2018, Dr Grainger’s fellowship will focus on understanding the integration of long-range and local mononuclear phagocyte training signals in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis.
