Spotlight on… How we can help you  spotlight

When we meet researchers, we’re often asked how we can help them. There are a number of ways we can support researchers with collaboration, from making introductions to other leading scientists, convening workshops to discuss working together, or pointing people towards funding as we try to do every month in this newsletter. One team of researchers we’ve been  supporting over a number of years recently won a major grant from the Wellcome Trust. We asked Dr Mark Thompson, from the University of Oxford, to tell us about their plans for the grant. It’s a great example of how we can help researchers to work together!
