The School of Cancer & Pharmaceutical Science are pleased to announce that applications for KC Wong Fellowships are now open at the Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences (IPS).

IPS has a history of success in attracting competitive candidates to work in a multidisciplinary environment with research undertaken in the areas of Drug Discovery, Medicines Development and Medicines Use. IPS hosted 3 fellows over the past 4 years.

The purpose of the Fellowship scheme is to provide the opportunity for post-doctoral researchers from the PR China to spend a year at King’s for research. Four Fellowships are available to King’s each year and this scheme is supported by the KC Wong Education Foundation.

We are inviting potential candidates to contact suitable host labs at the earliest opportunity.

Deadline for application is 5pm, 31 January 2022 (U.K. time).

Dr Lizhou Xu

I have been very grateful for the precious opportunity given by the KC Wong Fellowship in the year of my PhD graduation, 2016, which allowed me to work in a cutting-edge research area, with top scientists and at a world-leading university, King’s College London. My work on exosomes studies and cancer diagnosis, supported by the KC Wong Fellowship, has expanded my professional expertise and largely broaden my vision in science. In addition, I was so impressed by the interdisciplinary environment, collaborative atmosphere, and friendly culture that naturally associated with the department and King’s. I was fortunate to be awarded a Marie Curie fellowship immediately following the KC Wong Fellowship.

I decided to join KCL as a postdoc without any hesitation considering the famous academic reputation of KCL and KC Wong fellowship in 2017. It is an unforgettable experience for me to work at KCL because I met supportive supervisor and friendly colleagues. The fellowship allows me to gain the theoretical knowledges and practical skills in biocatalysis and photocatalysis, which provide complementarity to my major−metal catalysis. KC Wong fellowship further strengthens my future goal because it opens my eye to see a more beautiful world of chemistry and successful chemists who I want to be. My experience in KC Wong fellowship helps me to win the Marie Curie fellowship, which will promote me to be a better researcher in the field of organic chemistry.
