There are nine Expert Review Groups which together constitute a body of internationally renowned researchers with high level expertise and experience across the disciplines relevant to the Trust's biomedical remit. These Groups are responsible collectively for assessing and shortlisting Investigator Award and senior level fellowship applications. Details of the remits of the Expert Review Groups and management of conflicts of interest can be found here. We recognise that some applications may span more than one ERG remit or be multidisciplinary. The Trust will ensure that these applications are considered by the most appropriate Group on the basis of science and expertise.

Interview Committees

Made up of a core of standing members, with additional members (members of the decision-making committees or appropriate external experts) co-opted, as appropriate. The Committees interview candidates who have been shortlisted by the decision-making committees and approve or reject applications for fellowship awards.
