Funding Opportunities

The Pandemic Institute Emerging Threats Funding Call: Monkeypox

The Pandemic Institute’s first funding call will support research into monkeypox, a viral infection usually found in West and Central Africa. An increasing number of cases have been identified in the UK, and it is due to this unusual outbreak that the Institute’s first funding call will focus on research into this challenge.

Applications for projects with budgets up to £30,000 are invited from investigators based at The Pandemic Institute founding partner institutions. Successful Applications will demonstrate reasonable cohesion with The Pandemic Institute domains (Predict, Prevent, Prepare, Respond, Recover) as evaluated by the review panel. We realise a small number of investigators may be in a position to proceed with larger projects that can be started immediately and that would deliver rapid results with clear impact in a short time frame. If you are in that position, please contact us to discuss further.

Submit your application via this online form.
Deadline 17th June 2022

To assist the completion of your application, please review the Additional Call Information Document.
