Michael was awarded a Postdoctoral Fellowship in 2014 from our Population Research Committee, to work on a project exploring the association of beta adrenergic receptor expression and beta-blocker use with breast cancer survival.
Population Research Committee
The Population Research Committee (PRC) is responsible for the oversight, development, review, funding and management of a portfolio of awards for research Programmes and Project Grants in population science.
- Clinical and public health epidemiology (excluding primary and secondary prevention studies involving medical interventions, e.g. vaccines and chemoprevention).
- Educational and behavioural research in areas of prevention, screening and early diagnosis.
- Proposals considering clinical trials methodologies or statistics.
- Proposals considering secondary physical effects of treatment.
How proposals are judged
Applications are judged on the basis of scientific excellence, innovation and relevance to cancer research. The Committee meets twice a year and assesses all applications on the basis of their scientific and strategic importance, whilst also studying the expert peer review which is collated for each grant.
