Changes to Wellcome Trust  Investigator Award and Senior & Principal Research Fellowship schemes assessment processes. Effective with immediate effect, and to  include recently-submitted applications.

Process to date:

  • Applicants submit full applications for consideration by an Expert Review Groups without providing information on:
    • data management
    • clinical trials
    • animals.
  • This information has only been required from those applicants shortlisted for interview.

With immediate effect:

  • this information will now be requested prior to the Expert Review Group meeting;
  • application forms will be updated by Christmas to reflect this change;
  • during the interim phase, applicants are being contacted by Trust staff and asked to provide this information.

The assessment process for these schemes is otherwise unchanged.
