I am student currently undertaking a PhD after graduating with a First class honours degree in Msci in Physiology . My research is looking into the effects of a specific protein in fat tissue and how it affects the development of type 2 diabetes. I am a very passionate individual and have worked incredibly hard throughout my degree to achieve grades that would allow me to follow to pursue a career in science. I have won many awards throughout my degree due to my hard work which in turn resulted in me being awarded a scholarship which helps support my food and board. As for the research itself, the scholarship does not provide any financial support for lab equipment and travel. In science, it is vital for all researchers to travel and present their work to other scientists around the world. The key to developing a cure to diseases such as Diabetes is to share our knowledge with other and collaborate. I would therefore be needing approximately £2000 for travel so I can present my work at conferences around the world.
Finally, as for the lab equipment, it can be very expensive to buy even the smallest of tools so that I can carry out my research. A small amount of antibody can cost up to £250. I wouldn't be able to afford enough equipment with £18000, however, it would allow me to make significant advancement in my lab work. I'm a very determined and ambitious individual and I would like to make a difference to somebody's life by taking things further in Science and participating in the development of new therapeutic targets to treat Diabetes. I would be very grateful for any donations, thank you very much.
