The UCL BRC Cancer Theme recently awarded grants to pump-prime experimental medicine research aligned to one of our three strategic (see below) objectives or in the area of early detection of cancer.
The NIHR's Efficacy and Mechanism Evaluation programme is considering functional imaging as the topic for research it will commission shortly.
The NIHR is inviting applications for funding from its new Research and Innovation for Global Health Transformation (RIGHT) programme.
The UCL BRC Cancer theme seeks proposals for grants to pump-prime experimental medicine research aligned to one of our three strategic objectives (see below) or in the area of early detection of cancer. The applications will be assessed on scientific quality and the likelihood that the award will lead to further funding from grant-giving bodies. There should be a clear and credible plan for downstream grant applications predicated on the results of research funded through this scheme.
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.
The UCLH BRC Inflammation, Immunity and Immunotherapeutics Theme (III) recently awarded grants to support research proposals for translational research closely aligned to the III Theme’s strategy. The theme received a total of 22 applications, of which 12 were shortlisted. After a rigorous scoring process by the BRC III Board and external reviewers, 8 applications (listed below) have been granted funding to the tune of £528K.   The proposals submitted had to meet three key objectives:
