The Medical Sciences Internal Fund pump priming scheme accepts applications for small awards (up to £10k) to enable investigators to obtain pilot data to support larger scale applications for external research funding in the future.

Non-staff research costs, including equipment, are eligible. The fund is open to all members of the Medical Sciences Division but priority will be given to early career clinical researchers who are establishing their independent career. For this reason, if the applicant is an early career clinical researcher this should be made clear in the application. Proposals that can demonstrate matching funding from other sources will be received favourably.

Please complete the application form including a two-page summary of the research proposed under the headings in the case-for-support template provided. Please submit this as a single PDF.
