Local legacy provides innovative research funding
15 Jun 2019
A very generous legacy has allowed the Medical and Life Sciences Research Fund to support further innovative research. A number of excellent projects spanning medical, biomedical and agricultural research areas have been funded thanks to a Warwickshire resident generously providing the Medical and Life Sciences Research Fund with a legacy.
With this generosity the charity is able to advertise within Warwick University and local teaching hospitals for project applications for ‘pump priming ‘ of new projects which are all scrutinised by our scientific committee. The idea behind this is to allow a pilot of a project which if successful will allow an application to a national grant award body (MRC, BBSRC, Welcome etc) with results of an initial research undertaking which will greatly increase the possibility of a major grant award.
Help support new ideas see the light of day leading to exciting advances for us all by printing and completing the gift aid form and donating.
