Valerie West

Research Manager

I am a Research Manager within the Department of Psychiatry. I support researchers who are seeking funding to navigate the internal and external administrative processes around applying for grants and/or philanthropic funding. I facilitate departmental support for grant applications, liaising closely with applicants, the Associate Head of Department for Research and the Finance Team to ensure any grant submissions are optimal. I support the Unit of Assessment 4 (Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience) Coordinator for REF 2021 in coordinating our submission, in particular around eligibility, outputs and environment. I am the Open Access Monitor for the Department of Psychiatry and provide support around Symplectic and ORA

If you are thinking about applying for research funding, either now or in the future, I'd love to hear from you and support you in that process!
