If you are looking for some modest financial support for a pet research project in andrology, the British Andrology Society now has a limited grant fund for small awards (up to £5000) towards projects relating to any aspect of male-related clinical infertility and/or basic reproductive biology.
Consideration will be given to applications that are carefully compiled, scientifically convincing and have well defined objectives. Applicants, who must be UK citizens or employed in a UK-based organization, can apply for either the November or April deadlines.
The topics can be fairly wide ranging, from Feasibility studies prior to an award-granting body, developing or improving a technique or other science communication. Would-be applicants should note that applications for travel or attending a conference would not be eligible and applications for undergraduate vacation scholarships would be considered, but would be capped at £2500. Winners will be expected to become BAS members and to provide a brief report on their research.
And in case you didn't guess what the photo is - it is ram sperm frozen in ice (-20oC) on a cryomicroscope which was sponsored by Planer back in the 1990s !
