DDL Small Research Grant

Deadline: 29th April 2019

The Aerosol Society is passionate about furthering research in aerosol science and supporting new and emerging scientists in this endeavour. Since beginning the Small Research Grant scheme in 2012, The Aerosol Society has awarded over £55,000 enabling the recipient members to continue their research projects in aerosol science.

The DDL Small Research Grant is focused on projects specifically furthering research into drug delivery to the lungs. Upon completion of their project, our scientists are requested to present this work at a relevant Aerosol Society meeting or conference.

We are currently updating and enhancing our awards packages which will be published in March 2019 with new application deadlines. Please check here or your member newsletter for updates.
