EASL Fellowships support research in the liver
EASL launched its first research fellowship programme in 1997 and dedicated it to honor the memory of Dame Sheila Sherlock (pictured below). EASL fellowship programmes are open to registered EASL members. Applications are reviewed on the basis of their potential to foster the development of academic hepatology in Europe in order to enhance the mobility of investigators within different European institutions, to actively promote scientific exchange among research units.
Prof. Sheila Sherlock, was the second president of EASL for the Gothenburg meeting in 1967, and the first Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Hepatology (1984-1989). In the 1940s when she started out, the specialty of hepatology did not exist; Sherlock was its main creator, and, in her 60-year career, became one of the world's most famous names in clinical science. Sheila Sherlock was the first woman in Britain to be appointed a Professor of Medicine and the first to become vice-president of the Royal College of Physicians.
In 2011, EASL launched an additional research fellowship opportunity for currently practicing physician-scientists. The purpose of this new research fellowship is to enable physician-scientists to take leave from their clinical duties in order to spend either 6 or 12 months in a research laboratory.
Full details of each fellowship programme are available below.
EASL invests in its members to encourage continued learning and research. If you are not yet a registered member, the application process is simple and all applicants who have logged on will be considered for EASL fellowship programmes while their membership is being processed.
