The Trinity Term 2020 round of the Medical Sciences Internal Fund (MSIF) Pump Priming scheme (deadline 29 April 2020) has been cancelled.

The MSIF Chair and the Fund coordinators in Medical Sciences Division have taken the difficult decision to cancel this funding round due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. The Divisional Office team apologise sincerely to researchers who were intending to apply to this round and we understand the difficulties facing researchers at the current time. The Medical Sciences Division are hopeful that the next round of the Pump Priming scheme will run in Michaelmas Term as normal with a deadline in mid-October 2020 and further information will follow as soon as possible. When the current restrictions are lifted we look forward to continuing to support the excellent researchers and projects across the Medical Sciences Division.
