outcomes are out of embargo today. Disappointing to see the success rate for females at EL2 was a dismal 8.4%, the lowest success rate for all investigator grants for female applicants. At least I know that I am in the very best of company sitting in that 91.6%.

Today Investigator grants results came out. As usual I crunched the numbers & made few graphs ! Congrats to the awardees & condolences for those that missed out. If you wish to skip the thread => No major changes to last year: non clinical EMCRs screwed for this scheme

39 Investigator Grants awarded at my tier (EL2). Of those: - 5 awarded to full Professors - 14 to A/Professors - 13 in basic science I don't want to bang on about it - but how are we supposed to survive? Its cooked. 🤯 For the record I had no grants in this round.

Overall the investigator grant has a lot of merits. But I am dismayed to see 60% of emerging leader level 2 grants going to researchers at level D and E.

2 years in a row the new system has failed in its key objective of increasing prospects for . Less independent EMCRs than even before. IT.HAS.FAILED. When will change come, based on the data?!

Well done to all awardees of investigator grants. Question for , >75% of Leadership 1 awardees were full Prof, just wondering what disincentive there is for applicants to apply below their current level? Some Profs even in EL2!!!

History shows us time and time again, the best way to achieve medical breakthroughs is to fund the deepest and most general of biological questions. This is where the return is on investment. Our inability to get this message across is failing us.

I'm still pinching myself and feeling like I've caught a unicorn. Definitely gratitude, but also 'survivor guilt'. So many amazing researchers missed out. But the next few years are going to be very exciting! 🎉🎉🎉

Congratulations to the few lucky ones and commiserations to the rest of us. Non-clinical early and mid career researchers don’t stand a chance in this scheme with the majority of “emerging leaders” already ass/full professors, with succes rate at L1 also low.

While we’re celebrating all the big wins with grants - to those who didn’t get through, your ideas and research are still important. Don’t despair - there are many pathways for research. And we’ve all had that news plenty of times. Your time will come!

There were 9 women in basic science given Leadership level grants. That’s 25% of basic science Leadership grants.

3% success for Basic Science applications... setting aside the fact that postdocs are competing with FULL PROFESSORS!

From an unsuccessful applicant: I often find the criticism of the scheme takes away the glory from the successful 13%. Yes, we need more funding. Yes, many who missed out are worthy of funding. But, there's no doubt those 13% are brilliant & deserving.
