Rachael Connelly

Research Funding Manager

I am responsible for advice and guidance, policy development, project management and administration of internal research funds, including the John Fell Fund, the Medical Research Council Confidence in Concept (CiC) block grant, the Medical Sciences Internal Fund (MSIF) and the Wellcome Trust Institutional Strategic Support Fund (WTISSF).  Monitoring of finances, data analysis and post-award management are also core to this aspect of my work. The management of regular and ad hoc co-ordinated bids processes, provision of institutional letters of support and liaison with external funding organisations also feature in my duties.
