Jameel Fund

The Jameel Fund provides awards of up to USD 65,000 for short-term, high-impact projects at Imperial College London that advance our ability to understand, prevent, diagnose, and treat coronaviruses and other infectious diseases. The first round of funding, launched with support from Community Jameel in 2021, supported projects focused on the transmission of coronaviruses - including COVID-19, SARS and MERS - and also the pathogenesis of these diseases, or how they develop.

The Jameel Fund also funds complimentary research projects at King Abdulaziz University (KAU) in Jeddah, with a view to strengthening research collaborations between Imperial and Saudi universities in this field. KAU is the highest ranked university in the Arab region, according to the THE World University Rankings 2021, with strengths in infectious disease research.
