For info: Academy of Medical Sciences Leadership programme




The Academy of Medical Sciences is opening applications for the second round of our innovative, cross-sector leadership programme, FLIER: Future Leaders in Innovation, Enterprise and Research.


The FLIER Programme offers a unique opportunity for people who are mid-career and working in academia, industry, the NHS or policy organisations to form cross sector networks and develop collaborative leadership skills. The deadline for applications is Thursday 19 September 2019.


FLIER will equip these emerging leaders with skills to help solve the biggest health challenges we will face, and enable them to seize opportunities afforded to us by new discoveries in science, technology and medicine.


The Academy is committed to working towards diversity and equality of opportunity and for the second round of applications we actively encourage applications from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) candidates and candidates with disabilities.


We would like to see applications from people spanning the whole medical science ecosystem, including the pharmaceutical industry, biotech, regulation, policy, law, as well as basic and translational researchers.


The Academy is calling for Fellows, grant awardees and collaborators to think broadly about encouraging talented emerging leaders with a vision for collaboration across the sector to apply.


“FLIER stood out to me straight away. I’d got to a point in my career where I wanted to identify ways to work collaboratively across different sectors to address shared health challenges. I’ve got an immense amount out of the programme already and I’m really enjoying it.”

Chelsea Roche, LifeArc, current FLIER participant
