University Lecturer and beloved commander of the Cambridge Prosociality and Well-Being Lab, Dr Alex Kogan, has been awarded a three-year Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) grant under the Future Research Leaders Scheme.
The aims of the Scheme are to help outstanding early-career social scientists realise their potential to become world leaders in their field, and to fund world-class social science research. This year, the ESRC was particularly interested in proposals involving innovative research methods. Alex will research the role of the oxytocin system in well-being.
Alex's Lab has also been awarded an 18-month grant from the ESRC National Centre for Research Methods (NCRM) for a project that will bring together the latest smartphone and genetic initiatives to create a methodology that is both cost-effective and innovative.
