Wei Teng awarded a MBIE Science Whitinga Fellowship

Wei Teng from GCLS has been awarded a MBIE Science Whitinga Fellowship.

This early-career fellowship is funded by the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) and administered by the Royal Society Te Apārangi.

The prestigious award is worth $320,000 over two years and will enable him to spend the next two years working mainly on his ongoing community translation research project “In the Lay-reader’s Eyes – Reassurance of Translation Quality.”

This is a wonderful achievement and a great recognition of Wei’s hard work and talent.

In the words of Professor Gary Evans, Chief Science Advisor to the MBIE, the award aims to support “excellent early career researchers who have demonstrated a passion for research, science and innovation.”

Excellent news for MATI, the Chinese programme, the Department, the School, and the College!
