Santorio Fellowship
for Medical Humanities and Science

The scheme is designed to support young scholars willing to join CSMBR events. It runs every two years and is named after the Italian physician Santorio Santori (1561-1636), who introduced the quantitative method to medicine and is considered the father of quantitative experimental physiology.
