Corinne Prescott


Research Support Officer, MRC WIMM

My primary role is to manage all funding applications on behalf of NDCLS researchers based at MRC WIMM. It is my responsibility to ensure that all applications are costed appropriately, that the documentation is complete and the submission complies with funder requirements. I liaise with funding bodies during the application stage. I work with the University's Research Services Office to process applications with Research Accounts and Contract colleagues to ensure the timely set-up of newly award grants and the fulfilment of stipulations of research related contracts.

I circulate new funding opportunities to our PIs and postdoctoral researchers as they arise and, when appropriate, suggest specific calls which might suit particular individuals, and applications to initiatives, where these are congruent with the strategic objectives of the MRC WIMM.   

I provide support to applicants in planning research funding applications, assisting in identifying appropriate awards and Fellowships, and with the non-scientific elements of research funding applications, including:

  • explaining the application process
  • advising on eligible costs, and
  • ensuring that all of the required documentation is in place

Before joining the WIMM in 2019 I worked in research support in the Departments of Psychiatry and Experimental Psychology at Oxford, and prior to this in administration and non-clinical research roles at King’s College London.

Please note that although I welcome general questions from any WIMM researchers, I can only give application support to the following groups: Buckle, De Bruijn, Fulga, Gibbons, Goriely, Higgs, Hughes, Iotchkova, Jacobsen, Morrissey, Mead, Milne, Nerlov, Porcher, Rabbitts, Sahakyan, Sauka-Spengler, Taylor, Vyas, and Wilkie. For researchers in other groups, your local Departmental Grants Office can provided application support.
