We are pleased to announce that The Music Therapy Charity has awarded a £100,000 PhD Fellowship to our Music Therapy Researcher Sarah Faber and her supervisory team, Professors Jörg Fachner and Helen Odell-Miller.

Sarah is currently employed on our music therapy and autism research project in conjunction with Imperial College, London. The PhD proposal is about studying musical interaction by measuring the brain activity of two people improvising. For the first year, funds will go towards a professional EEG recording system for the project, which will also benefit other researchers, and thereafter to Sarah's funded scholarship.

The field was highly competitive, so many congratulations go to Sarah and the team.
