Greetings from the Research Management Unit (RMU), Research Office, Faculty of Medicine, UM!

The Fundamental Research Grant Scheme (FRGS) is expected to open in December 2023. We are pleased to announce that the RMU will be organising the FRGS Grant Clinics from October to November 2023. We have assembled a team of experienced FRGS reviewers as consultants, who will help carefully assess your proposal draft and offer constructive feedback to enhance it in preparation for the next FRGS application deadline. These clinics will be conducted in personalised, one-on-one sessions, ensuring the privacy and confidentiality of all proposals. 

A total of fifteen (15) consultation slots are available, and participation is based on a first-come-first-serve basis. Details are as follows:



25th October, 1st, 8th, 15th & 22nd November 2023
