Female Lecturer

The  PARSUK Xplore - Academic Development Fund was created in 2021 and results from the restructuring of the Travel Grants initiative created in 2017.



Dr Andreia Albuquerque Wendt is the winner of the Xplore 2021 scholarship! This scholarship aims to support the costs of participating in scientific events to promote research done by our members.  She will be presenting a poster at the "3rd UK workshop on membrane proteins and European SMALP" in Birmingham with her work in the field of infectious diseases, in particular the leishmanioses. 

About this initiative 

It is an annual initiative in which members of the PARSUK community are awarded with a training grant that helps covering partially the costs of participating in scientific events, which can include oral presentations or posters related to the candidate's research work, as well as courses or workshops that aim to complement the candidate's academic or professional training.


​If you are a PARSUK member and a researcher in the United Kingdom, you are at the beginning of your career and you want to complement your professional training through specialized courses or events between 2021 and 2022, you can apply to this program. Know more in the guidance notes below.
