The ACTF-CAMS partnership provides funding for a range of initiatives to support the development of analytical measurement science talent. The objective of the ACTF is to promote, assist and extend the science and study of analytical chemistry, and of all questions relating to the analysis, nature and composition of natural and manufactured materials for the benefit of the public. CAMS is an industry-led initiative aimed at promoting world-class analytical measurement science training, research and innovation.

Naimh O'Boyle says " I would encourage everybody to make an application for a CAMS fellowship to support their development. The application is straightforward and there is great support across a wide range of analytical chemistry research. The fellowship has been incredible in supporting my own research using ToF-SIMS to investigate allergens in the skin"
