Funding: influenza research
23 January 2006
The Wellcome Trust is currently actively seeking high-quality research proposals that aim to further the understanding of avian and human flu via the project grant and programme grant schemes. Research proposals addressing questions that are particularly urgent and timely will be fast-tracked through our assessment procedures.
All applications will be assessed on the basis of the excellence of the science presented.
Research proposals would be particularly welcome in the following areas:
- molecular basis of virulence
- molecular architecture and evolution of influenza viruses
- interspecies transmission
- genetic susceptibility to infection
- approaches to prevention and treatment.
How to apply
Project and programme grant applications are handled through our funding streams. Choose the stream closest to your area of scientific interest (see 'which stream is for me?' if you are not sure which to choose).
