OCMS Internal Pump Priming Fund 

The OCMS Internal Pump Priming Fund (IPPF) enables investigators to fund pilot projects in microbiome research.

The first round of funding took place in 2019 and supported 10 projects allocating up to £20,000 per award.

Although there are no open IPPF calls at the moment, future application rounds will be advertised here and throughout the usual University's communication channels.
