Each year Rosetrees runs an Interdisciplinary Prize to stimulate collaborative research between Medicine and another discipline. We hope to stimulate exciting new breakthroughs that will have real potential to improve human health.

In 2014, the collaboration was with Engineering and Imperial College won the prize for their project ‘A Wearable In-Ear System for Continuous Monitoring of Brain and Body Functions’.

In 2015, the collaboration was with Chemistry and University of Cambridge won the prize for their project ‘Nanoparticle delivery of conventional and novel drugs for tuberculosis’.

In 2016, the collaboration was with Computing / Mathematics and UCL won the prize for their project ‘Barriers to successful CAR T-cell therapy in pancreatic cancer’.

In 2017, the collaboration returned to Engineering and the standard was so high that we awarded joint winners to Hebrew University for their project ‘Circadian rhythms on a human chip’, and University of Edinburgh for their project ‘Early diagnosis of drug-­‐induced liver injury using point of care detection of microRNA’.

This year the prize returns to collaboration between medicine and chemistry or physics. The round is currently open and has an application deadline by midnight on 28th February 2018. The prize for the winning project is worth up to £250,000 over 3 years, and we hope to be able to announce the outcome in early July 2018. Further details are contained within the link below.
