Funding Opportunities

Up to £100k available for BRC III research

Applications are invited for awards of up to £100,000 for Infection, Immunity and Inflammation (III) research under the BRC ‘Big Questions’ scheme.

The ‘Big Questions’ scheme was established to support proposals across key strategic areas of the four BRC programmes. ‘Big Questions’ are focused on areas of existing or emerging strengths and designed to tackle challenging areas of medical science with the potential for clinical translation and impact.

The strategic areas of the BRC III programme are:

  • pathogen resistance
  • therapeutic targeting of abnormal inflammation, tissue repair and fibrosis
  • gene and cell therapy

The scheme will fund projects up to £100,000 (directly incurred costs until 31 March 2017) and proposals should have outcomes aligned to the III themes deliverable before March 2017.

Awards will not be made for pump-priming or to establish new projects.

The NIHR policy precludes funding animal research and capital will not be funded.

Send applications to Dr Nandi Simpson, BRC III Programme Operations Manager i.simpson@ucl.ac.uk by 5pm, Friday 12 June. Applicants will be informed of the outcome in July.
