Dear Sir/Madam,

Thank you for the response to our FOI request. Could you please clarify whether or not you will be able to provide the information as requested in part 1? Now you mention both that we will receive this information on the 11th of December, as well as that you are refusing the request. If compiling the complete request in part 1 exceeds the number of working hours/costs allowed under FOI law, instead could you provide us with the following adjusted information:

1. a spreadsheet with the funder, amount, title and date of all funding (including all financial support, grants, donations, etc.) to Sarah Gilbert from the year 2000 to the earliest date available.
2. a spreadsheet with the funder, amount, title and date of all funding (including all financial support, grants, donations, etc.) to Andrew Hill from the year 2000 to the earliest date available.

We will be able to sort through the grants ourselves using the search terms relevant to the adenovirus vector vaccine platform and classify the funders to save you time and effort.
Finally, we are also looking forward to hearing back from you regarding section 3 of our FOI, as we are still eagerly awaiting this information.

With the kindest regards,
Sarai Keestra
