Further money or property may be paid or transferred to the University as either expendable or permanent endowment to be held on the same trusts. The assets so held will be known as the Hoffmann and Action Medical Research Professorship in Developmental Medicine Fund (“the Fund”).

The Professor shall undertake research, lecture and give instruction in Developmental Medicine. If the salary, expenses and overheads of the Professor are wholly or partly covered from other sources or there are further funds available, there shall be discretion to apply the income and/or capital of the Fund to support the Professor’s research, or other academic activity in the field of Developmental Medicine.
4. The administration of the Fund, and the application of its income, shall be the responsibility of the Medical Sciences Board.

(1) the Vice-Chancellor, or, if the Principal of Jesus College is Vice- Chancellor, a person appointed by Council on the occurrence of a vacancy to act as an elector on that occasion;

8. The University may in its absolute discretion in the period ending 21 years from the date of this regulation, instead of applying the income of the Fund or the Support Fund in any year, accumulate all or any part of such income by investing it, and holding it as part of the capital of the Fund or the Support Fund (as the case may be). The University may apply the whole or any part of such accumulated income in any subsequent year as if it were income of the Fund or the Support Fund (as the case may be) arising in the then current year.

12. Subject to regulation 13, Council may amend, repeal or add to these regulations in accordance with Part D of Statute XVI, but no amendment is valid if it would cause the Fund or the Support Fund to:
(1) cease to be exclusively charitable according to the law of England and Wales; or
(2) be outside the objects of the University.
13. Any amendment to the main objects of the Fund or the Support Fund for the purposes of Part D of Statute XVI must be approved both by Congregation of the University and subsequently by Her Majesty in Council.
