Researcher awarded Wellcome Trust grant for sabbatical

Dr Vasanta Subramanian, senior lecturer in the Department of Biology & Biochemistry, has been awarded a six month grant for a sabbatical to acquire new expertise to complement her current research in the area of motor neurone disease.

The grant is part of a new scheme from the Wellcome Trust that provides funds for travel, consumables and equipment to researchers to learn new techniques from other labs and to implement them in their own labs when they return.

Dr Subramanian has already spent two months in the US working in the laboratory of Dr Anand Chandrasekhar, University of Missouri, Columbia and plans to travel to laboratories in the US and Germany in the next few months before returning to Bath and establishing the new approaches in her own lab.

“The generous support from the Wellcome Trust has given me a fantastic opportunity to help establish some new techniques and approaches to my work here in Bath” said Dr Subramanian.
