The Ling Felce award will promote cross-disciplinary excellence in bioinformatics.

The CAMS-Oxford Institute within the Nuffield Department of Medicine at the University of Oxford are seeking funds to start an award in memory of Dr Ling Felce who was killed in a cycling accident in March 2022.

A scientist of extraordinary talent, Ling developed an interest in computational biology after completing the Oxford Biomedical Data Science Training Programme at the MRC Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine. Dr Felce’s work laid the groundwork for the bioinformatic research platform used by the Dong group at the Nuffield Department of Medicine and the MRC WIMM. After joining the team as a postdoctoral scientist in 2020, Dr Felce contributed to a number of projects investigating the immune response to infection with the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

“Ling was one of the brightest and nicest people we’ve taught on the programme” says Dr David Sims, Associate Professor of Computational Genomics and director of the training programme, “she really leveraged it to take her career forward, which was great to see.”

The Ling Felce award therefore seeks to offer financial support for researchers to undertake training in the analysis and interpretation of large datasets.

In memory of Dr Felce, this award will help to support the next generation of world-leading computational biologists. Awards will be made to support researchers wishing to sign up to the Oxford Biomedical Data Science Training Programme at the MRC Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine.
