The Jeffrey W Pollard Memorial Fund

About the Jeffrey W Pollard Memorial Fund and how to donate.

Professor Jeffrey W Pollard was the Director of the MRC Centre for Reproductive Health at the University of Edinburgh, and a world-renowned pioneer in the field of tumour-associated macrophage biology.

In addition to his invaluable contributions to Science, Jeffrey was very passionate in sharing his knowledge, and helping younger colleagues to succeed in their careers through mentorship and scientific collaborations.

To honour and continue his legacy we have created the Jeffrey W Pollard Memorial Fund which will be used to organise scientific meetings focused on macrophage biology, and to fund travel and enrichment grants aimed at early career researchers.
