C2D2 was supported by an Institutional Strategic Support Fund award to the University of York from the Wellcome Trust. The award offers financial support for universities to enhance institutional strategies for the biomedical sciences.

Chronic diseases and disorders affect the quality of life of billions worldwide.

Running from October 2011 until March 2017, C2D2 was as an institution-wide 'virtual centre' for coordinating, promoting, supporting and maximising the benefit of interdisciplinary research and research-linked activities in the area of chronic diseases and disorders at the University of York. Its activities were supported by funding from the Wellcome Trust and the University of York.
