The Trinity Term 2020 round of the Wellcome Institutional Strategic Support Fund (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.
For upcoming deadlines please see the main ISSF deadlines page.
