Wellcome ISSF Catalyst Awards

‌The Wellcome Institutional Strategic Support Fund (ISSF) committees are pleased to announce the awardees for the first round of Catalyst and Secondment Funds. The catalysts were split into two categories: Early Career Researcher (ECR) and Excellence and Innovation. The committees had a tough time deciding and were grateful for all applications received.  As an extra step this year, interviews were held for a subset of the ECR researchers.
