for Researchers

Researchers form a core part of the Association’s activities, and we welcome both national and international members who we encourage to play an active part in the life of the Association.

Funding Opportunities

There are opportunities for ASMCF members to obtain funding for their activities. For example, each year the Executive Committee opens four rounds of the Association's Initiative fund, supporting costs of up to £500 for research activities, and it welcomes applications for seminar series.
