Wellcome Developing Concept Fund (DCF) and MRC Confidence in Concept (CiC) calls

Wellcome Developing Concept Fund (DCF) and MRC Confidence in Concept (CiC) calls

Deadline for applications: Thursday 21 July

 

The Cambridge Academy of Therapeutic Sciences (CATS) and the Office for Translational Research (OTR) would like to announce the simultaneous opening of the DCF and CiC calls.  Funding of up to £50,000 (100% direct costs only) for a maximum duration of nine months is available to support early stage translational research from discovery science into new therapies (including repurposing of existing therapies), diagnostics and medical devices. 

 

All Principal Investigators with an affiliation with University of Cambridge are eligible to apply and we encourage early career researchers to apply as co-applicants. This funding is intended to support the generation of initial evidence of efficacy and proof of concept data, and to de-risk projects prior to seeking substantive external downstream funding/investment. If interested, please contact Cathy Boucher or Juraj Rievaj to discuss your project plans and to agree on which funding is most appropriate. The deadline for completed applications is Thursday 21 July.
