This scheme is for scientists in the UK who want to refurbish or renovate their research laboratories.
This scheme aims to improve the existing physical infrastructure in UK universities to promote high quality scientific research.
Funding for each round supports a particular subject area. The present focus is on “Infectious Disease”, which can be interpreted widely to include:
- infections of humans and animals, including cellular and molecular biology, microbial physiology, biodiversity, animal models and structural biology relating to these diseases
- disease susceptibility, immunity and resistance in natural hosts, animal models and vectors
- infectious disease distribution and transmission (including methodologies such as epidemiology, mathematical modelling, bioinformatics and statistics).
The proposed refurbishment can either be for a UK laboratory or an overseas laboratory wholly or majority owned and operated by a UK based research organisation or university.
The scheme is generously supported by the Wolfson Foundation.
