The allocation of funding under the Medical Sciences Internal Fund (MSIF) Bridging and Family Leave schemes is currently suspended until further notice.

The Medical Sciences Divisional Office team are very sympathetic to the difficulties facing researchers and their teams as a result of the COVID-19 crisis. However it is vital that the Division and wider University has a comprehensive strategy for supporting its staff in the coming months. MSD will be supporting Departments equitably and transparently with their staff funding issues and further information will follow when University policies on furloughing, fixed term contracts, etc. are finalised and when we obtain a clear funding position from our major funders.


Please submit your application online via the Internal Research Award Management System (IRAMS)

Guidance in the form of quick reference guide (QRG) documents for applicants, departmental approvers and administrators can be found on Research Support pages.

Applications must be reviewed online for eligibility and departmental support by departmental approvers and, where approved, submitted to the Committee for review. 

Applications, scores and reviewer comments may be shared with other internal University panels to ensure maximum value for money.
