Internal Funding - Wellcome Trust Developing Concept Fund and Medical Research Council Confidence in Concept


Deadline for applications: August 2020 (Open to University of Cambridge applicants only)


The following calls for internal pump-priming funding for biomedical translational research are now open:


1.       The MRC Confidence in Concept fund is intended to accelerate the transition from discovery research to translational development projects by supporting preliminary work or feasibility studies to establish the viability of an approach.


2.       The WT Developing Concept Fund is aiming at an earlier stage of translational research, with a view to having sufficient evidence to support an MRC CiC award in the future. 


Please contact Estelle Bernard-Fichet for applications relating to the MRC CiC, or Cathy Boucher for applications relating to the WT DCF. The submission date is now likely to be end of August 2020 - to be confirmed. Please submit your expression of interest in the funding available and you will be kept informed of any changes.
