Eleven more STEM researchers return with Daphne Jackson Fellowships

We've been busy here at the Daphne Jackson Trust and are delighted to announce that in the last four months 11 new Fellowships have been awarded. The awards mean a further eight women and three men will return to research in STEM disciplines ranging from astrophysics to biomedicine, at universities around the UK from Exeter to Edinburgh.
