Congratulations to Dr Young Chan Kim, our former Somervillian DPhil student and current Lecturer in Clinical Medicine, on being awarded a Sir Henry Wellcome Postdoctoral Fellowship.

The Sir Henry Wellcome Postdoctoral Fellowship offers recently qualified postdoctoral researchers the opportunity to start independent research careers. As a Sir Henry Wellcome Fellow, Young will receive the total grant of £300,000 (£0.3m) to expand his research horizons and develop his scientific independence so that he can become a leader in the field of vaccinology. For his fellowship, he will continue his research on structure-based vaccinology for arthropod-borne viruses at the Jenner Institute under the sponsorship of Professor Sir Adrian Hill.

Young is currently a Lecturer in Clinical Medicine at Somerville College providing tutorials for our medical students in clinical years. He also works as Junior Research Fellow (JRF) at Wolfson College, a Senior Postdoctoral Fellow at the Oxford Vaccine Group (OVG) and a doctor in internal medicine at the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust.
