This scheme intends to fund short (up to 12 months) collaborative projects that will assist the translation of research towards tropical healthcare with a highlight focus area in diagnostic tools for tropical and infectious diseases. The call aims to utilise pre-existing resources made available by on-the-ground researchers in MORU in which Oxford based researchers would want to test their diagnostics tools on appropriate cohort pool on.
The funding will not support:
- Discovery research (D1 or TRL1 – see Appendices 1 and 2)
- Entire translational projects; Staff between posts/funding (i.e. as “bridging” funds)
- DPhil/PhD studentships; Continuation of pre-existing research grants
