The Royal Society has announced the latest recipients of a scheme funded by the Wolfson Foundation designed to improve existing research facilities in UK universities to promote high quality scientific research.
The Royal Society Wolfson Laboratory Refurbishment scheme provides up to £250,000 per award for proposed refurbishments to a laboratory operated by a UK based research organisation or university.
Funding for this round focuses on "Infectious Disease" to support scientists researching infections of humans and animals. Previous rounds have focused on imaging, reduction in carbon emissions and ‘-omic’ technologies, for example technologies in genomics or proteomics.
The scheme is supported by the Wolfson Foundation. More information about the scheme can be found on our grants pages.
