MRC Experimental Medicine Challenge Grants

The MRC invites researchers to apply for the Experimental Medicine Challenge Grants (EMCG) initiative, which supports research into disease pathophysiology conducted in humans.

The initiative aims to fund ambitious research programmes that generate a new and deeper understanding of human disease mechanisms and identify new therapeutic targets, so accelerating translational medicine.

EMCG will fund studies that address the biggest gaps in our understanding of the causes and progression of human disease and which will produce major new mechanistic insights, with potential application to new therapeutic or diagnostic approaches and opportunities for “reverse translation” to basic research.

The deadline for outline applications for this call is 31 May 2018.
