We support research into all aspects of science: from molecules and cells vital to life, through the spread of diseases or the vectors of disease across the globe, to clinical and public health research to improve the quality of healthcare.
Research can be based in the laboratory, the clinic or the field, and may involve experimental or theoretical approaches.
We not only fund scientists but we also support undergraduate and doctoral students, clinicians, dentists and veterinarians. We fund the best researchers with the most innovative and exciting ideas in the form of personal and research support, collaborations and support for symposia, conferences and workshops. A significant proportion of our funding is devoted to support those working overseas.
