Wellcome Trust Institutional Strategic Support Fund

Over the past five years, the Wellcome Trust Institutional Strategic Support Fund (ISSF) has helped the University of Glasgow deliver sustainable change and enhance its focus on Logo of Wellcomehuman and animal health. The latest £3.75m ISSF3 award, with matched funding from the University, will support seven strategic priority areas.  These include interdisciplinary and translational research, researcher career development, engendering equality and diversity, and embedding and expanding a culture of public engagement.  Leading this work on behalf of the College is Dr Allison Jackson, Research Development Manager, who noted: “Building on our success across biomedical sciences, we are delighted to be launching a new series of ISSF3 schemes to enhance researcher experience and, in addition, we have established a dedicated MVLS engagement team to directly support staff with training and resources.”
More information on the ISSF programme and researcher support is available here.
