The Oxford Centre for Microbiome Studies (OCMS) invites researchers to apply to the OCMS Internal Pump Priming Fund, a BRC-funded scheme to support microbiome research across the University.

The scheme offers small awards of £5,000-10,000 (and exceptionally up to £20,000) and will enable researchers to fund pilot projects or further support existing projects on human microbiome profiling by providing access to technologies and integrative analyses. Successful projects are required to be completed by December 2020.

The deadline for proposals is Friday 15 November.
