Small Grant Award Scheme for a Clinical Research Project

12 Jan 2007

Preliminary applications invited by 1 February 2007

As part of an ongoing strategy to foster new initiatives and developments, and to bring new research into the facility The Wellcome Trust Clinical Research Facility (CRF) Manchester wishes to initiate a small grant award scheme that will enable clinical research in the CRF.

While funding can be for research clinicians and academics, we are particularly interested in hearing from nurses and allied healthcare professionals with a variety of previous experience. All of the research project must be undertaken in the CRF.

Funding will be for the time stipulated by the investigator and can contribute toward: covering the salary of the applicant, a contribution to registration fees, nursing, facilities/equipment a small allowance to cover research expenses and the opportunity to disseminate the results of the work conducted in the CRF.  The total amount available will be a maximum of £50k for a maximum of five projects with a maximum of £12k for any one project. 

Prospective applicants and, where appropriate, supervisors are invited to submit a preliminary application outlining the project by Thursday 1 February 2007.
