Wellcome Institutional Strategic Support Fund (ISSF): Cross-faculty research consortia call
The University has been awarded a Wellcome Institutional Strategic Support Fund (ISSF) to support a portfolio of biomedical research activities that harmonises with our research strategy and provides added value to our research activities.
A proportion of this grant will be spent on awards fostering cross-faculty interdisciplinary biomedical research between the Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health (FBMH), Faculty of Humanities (eg social sciences) and Faculty of Science and Engineering (eg mathematics, physics, chemistry, engineering, materials science and computational sciences).
The purpose of these awards is to pump-prime new activity that addresses the important biomedical problems, through collaboration between groups of principal investigators with distinctive skills, for major external funding and to help establish sustainable Centres of Excellence in Manchester. The primary criteria for all awards will be excellence and alignment with the Wellcome science remit.
This call is currently closed for applications.
