My winning proposal: Fine detail delivers Dunhill grant

Anastasia Angelopoulou’s experience as a software programmer prepared her to dot every ‘i’ and cross every ‘t’ on her way to a grant from the Dunhill Medical Trust, which supports ageing-related research. Beckie Smith reports.

Anastasia’s top tips

  • If you are applying as an early-career researcher, do not let a lack of confidence trick you into under-valuing your bid.
  • Focus on building a team with complementary talents rather than one with big names.
  • The Dunhill Medical Trust’s application form is thorough, so be sure not to miss out any of the detail that has been requested.

Angelopoulou is a senior lecturer in mathematics and computer graphics in the University of Westminster’s Department of Computer Science. Last year she secured a Dunhill Medical Trust Research Project Grant worth £65,173 to develop diagnostic tools for the early diagnosis of dementia in ageing deaf users of British Sign Language.
