This Fund supports research on the developmental biology of invertebrates or vertebrates. Applicants must be researchers within the Department of Zoology (graduate students, postdocs, research fellows and academic staff). Grants are usually less than £2,000 although some larger applications are occasionally considered.
The subject of developmental biology is interpreted broadly to include embryology, life history evolution, tissue regeneration and development of behaviour. Examples of recent grants awarded include:
- Ageing in fruit flies
- Deciphering the planarian stem cell regulome
- Regulation of spinal cord stem cell specification in lamprey
- Sound-producing muscles in Hemiptera
