My winning proposal: Brainy ferrets bag BBSRC bid

Teaching ferrets to recognise words didn’t seem like a project that would yield results, so neuroscientist Jennifer Bizley worked on it after hours. But the idea eventually led to a £527,364 BBSRC grant, she tells Georgina Hines.

Bizley is a reader in auditory neuroscience at the University College London Ear Institute and holds a Sir Henry Dale research fellowship from the Wellcome Trust and the Royal Society. She previously held a Dorothy Hodgkin fellowship from the Royal Society and was a L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science fellow in 2009-10.

Her Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council responsive mode grant started in April 2016 and runs for three years. The next deadline for the BBSRC’s responsive mode scheme is 4 October. Funding is available for up to 5 years.
