Dear All,

​The impact of the coronavirus outbreak is felt by us all and I thank you for your ongoing contributions to our community and society as a whole at this time. We each have a role to play, whether in our own household, our local community or in a professional capacity. ​​

As I have shared with you over recent weeks, we are proud to be playing a key role in tackling the pandemic. The funding we have received so far means that our work on tackling coronavirus is well underway, but we need further support to accelerate and broaden our research. ​​

In light of this, we are launching our Coronavirus Action Fund, seeking donations to help us develop our specialist research environment and equip our experts to tackle the current emergency while continuing their work to improve health.

​​To find out more, please visit our new Coronavirus Action Fund webpages or email the Development and Alumni team via​​We would be so grateful for your help to spread the word about the support we need to continue our important work. If you know of individuals or organisations who might be interested in donating, please forward on this email or share details via social media using the links at the bottom. We'll be following up with further resources you can use to promote the campaign in the coming weeks.​​Anything you can do to raise the profile of our campaign will help our scientists to make valuable contributions towards understanding and responding to coronavirus, and to shape a healthier future when we emerge from the pandemic. ​​I thank you in advance for your support. ​​

With best wishes, ​​Jenny Higham ​Principal ​​
