Wellcome Trust Clinical Research Facility Small Grant Awards 2009.

13 Feb 2009

Open to research clinicians, academics, nurses and allied healthcare professionals.

The WTCRF Manchester is now launching the Small Grant Awards for 2009 and hope to attract applications from across their five partners. While funding can be for research clinicians and academics, the WRCRF is particularly interested in receiving applications from nurses and allied healthcare professionals.

In 2008, the WTCRF Manchester awarded a record seven small grant awards, due to the tremendous calibre of applications. The WTCRF's small grant panel awarded £50,000 to winners from across their five partner organisations:

  • The University of Manchester
  • Central Manchester University Hospital Foundation Trust (CMFT)
  • Manchester Mental Health & Social care Trust
  • University Hospital of South Manchester NHS Foundation Trust
  • Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust

The winning applications cover a wide expanse of research topics including Cancer, Mental Health, Congenital Heart Disease, Vascular Disease and Musculoskeletal, Rheumatology and Renal health.

The Small Grant Awards, now entering their third year, were set up as part of the WTCRF's ongoing strategy to foster new initiatives and developments and to bring new, pioneering research to the facility. The grants will provide vital financial support to some of Manchester's most esteemed researchers.
