The James Gear Fellowship

The PRF invites applications each year for the James Gear Fellowship award. Details regarding this are available on this website.

The PRF recently was able to contact a number of the twenty past recipients of this prestigious award inviting them, with the benefit of hindsight, to submit a review of the impact the James Gear Fellowship had had on them personally and their careers in virology.

Reviews have been received from:

  1. Prof Barry Schoub
  2. Prof Clive Gray
  3. Prof Duncan Steele
  4. Prof Patrick Arbuthnot
  5. Dr Batsirai Mabvakure
  6. Dr Jinal Bhiman
  7. Prof Lynn Morris
  8. Dr Kabamba B Alexandre

Each of these reviews may be accessed using the links provided.

It is evident that without exception, receiving the James Gear Fellowship has had a major positive effect in the lives of the recipients.

The PRF thus encourages candidates who believe they meet the necessary criteria to consider applying for a James Gear Fellowship.
