Translational Research Exchange @ Exeter (TREE)
The Translational Research Exchange @ Exeter (TREE) is an innovative programme designed to build research links between biomedical and clinical research.
The University of Exeter has received a £1.5million grant from Wellcome Trust’s Institutional Strategic Support Fund (ISSF) for the project, the third time it has successfully applied for funds through the leading scheme.
The funding covers five years (from 2016 to 2021), and its overall aim is to bridge the gaps between clinicians and biomedical research – its emphasis is on delivering 'impact' from both biomedical and clinical research. This continues and further develops the work of the Centre for Biomedical Modelling and Analysis (CBMA) which the ISSF previously funded.
We offer funding to cover short seed corn projects, as well as secondment opportunities across biomedical and clinical practice.
Launched in late 2016, we're a growing team of researchers supporting the sharing of knowledge and expertise between biomedical and clinical research areas.
Applications recently closed for our first Clinical Primer post. We'll be running these each year with Prof Tamsin Ford
