Funding from Wellcome trust
Trust fund research into all aspects of biology and medicine: from molecules and cells vital to life, through the spread of diseases or the vectors of disease across the globe, to clinical and public health research that can improve the quality of healthcare delivered to people.
Trust offers a wide variety of funding, from personal support to grants to cover research and equipment costs. We organise our funding into five streams: Immunology and Infectious Disease; Neuroscience and Mental Health; Physiological Sciences; Molecules, Genes and Cells; and Populations and Public Health.
Trust fund research that aims to improve animal health. Proposals addressing research into animal health are considered in their own right, on the basis of the importance of the scientific question posed and the excellence of science, regardless of relevance to human disease. Animal health, zoonoses and emerging infections are areas of specific interest within the Trust's International Strategy, and applications are encouraged from eligible individuals based either in the UK or a developing country.
