At the University of Dundee, we are on the front line in the fight against Covid-19. Your donation, whatever its size, will help. As society takes small careful steps to recover and return to some kind of normality, our science can’t stand still. Your donation will help ongoing research - the results of which will have a long-lasting impact on the health and well-being of our communities. We must ensure we never have to endure the painful separation from loved ones and sacrifice of our day-to-day lives again.

You can support the Coronavirus Research Campaign by making a donation online. You can also extend your support by setting up a monthly, quarterly or annual Direct Debit online (ensuring you select "Coronavirus Campaign" from the drop-down menu).

At the University of Dundee, we immediately responded to the significant challenges presented by the coronavirus (Covid-19). Researchers in our Schools of Life Sciences and Medicine are working to understand the virus better, to help develop effective testing, to contribute to the global search for a vaccine and to improve outcomes for those affected locally.

Our work has been recognised as excellent and has attracted funding from the Chief Scientist’s Office, the Wellcome Trust and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, amongst other key research funding institutes.

We greatly appreciate the help received from funders. You can also boost this work to progress further and faster. Donations from the public allow our scientists to be nimble by having the funds to follow emerging concepts and ideas quickly, in the pursuit of a breakthrough in the fight against this novel coronavirus and future viruses.

As our communities take small careful steps to recover and return to some kind of normality, our science can’t stand still. Your donation, whatever its size, will help ongoing research - the results of which will have a long-lasting impact on society. We must ensure we never have to endure the painful separation from loved ones and sacrifice of our day-to-day lives again.

Thank you.

Professor David Maguire
Interim Principal & Vice-Chancellor

“We are delighted to be able to support the University of Dundee Coronavirus Research Fundraising Campaign. We strongly believe that research is the only way to protect people from Covid-19. The medical community has never faced a more urgent need for research than the unprecedented situation we face today.  We know that scientists here in Dundee have the skills and expertise to improve outcomes and deliver results for our local communities and we are privileged to be able to help progress this vital research further and faster.”
