Medical Sciences Internal Fund (MSIF) Bridging and Family Leave schemes

The allocation of funding under the MSIF Bridging and Family Leave schemes is currently suspended until further notice. The Medical Sciences Divisional Office team are very sympathetic to the difficulties facing researchers and their teams as a result of the COVID-19 crisis. However it is vital that the Division and wider University has a comprehensive strategy for supporting its staff in the coming months. MSD will be supporting Departments equitably and transparently with their staff funding issues and further information will follow when University policies on furloughing, fixed term contracts, etc. are finalised and when we obtain a clear funding position from our major funders.

Medical Sciences Internal Fund (MSIF) Pump Priming scheme

The Trinity Term 2020 round of the MSIF Pump Priming scheme (deadline 29 April 2020) has been cancelled. The MSIF Chair and the Fund coordinators in Medical Sciences Division have taken the difficult decision to cancel this funding round due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. The Divisional Office team apologise sincerely to researchers who were intending to apply to this round and we understand the difficulties facing researchers at the current time. The Medical Sciences Division are hopeful that the next round of the Pump Priming scheme will run in Michaelmas Term as normal with a deadline in mid-October 2020 and further information will follow as soon as possible. When the current restrictions are lifted we look forward to continuing to support the excellent researchers and projects across the Medical Sciences Division.

Wellcome Institutional Strategic Support Fund (ISSF) scheme

The Trinity Term 2020 round of the Wellcome ISSF (deadline 29 April 2020) has been cancelled. The ISSF Chair and fund Coordinators in MSD have taken the difficult decision to cancel this funding round due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. The ISSF Committee apologise sincerely to researchers who were intending to apply to this round and we understand the difficulties facing researchers and their teams at the current time. Many researchers across the University are currently unable to conduct their research with all non-essential access to Departments and laboratories being restricted, with additional impact on clinical research and field work. The Committee are hopeful that the next round of the Wellcome ISSF scheme will run in Michaelmas Term with a deadline in mid-October 2020, and further information will follow as soon as possible. When the current restrictions are lifted the ISSF Committee look forward to continuing to support the excellent researchers and projects across the University.
