DPF invest in scientists who:
- have shown high potential
- can demonstrate that they are on an upward trajectory with clear evidence of strong scientific outputs and leadership qualities
- have the aim of establishing their own fully independent programme of research
DPF represents part of our commitment to the supply of highly skilled professional research leaders to the UK.
