Project Grant Applications

Density dependent colour scanning electron image of cardiovascular calcification. Dr. Sergio Bertazzo, UCL

We  fund small (up to £30k per annum) and large project grants (up to £80k per annum). These awards are aimed at developing more progressed research and can be used to fund salaries, consumables and other running costs. We anticipate that selection for large project grants will be extremely competitive. Selection will be based on the publication and grant funding record of the applicants and projects with translational impact with a clearly defined route for clinical implementation will be given priority. If you are interested in applying for a large award please contact us in advance for informal discussions or e-mail a short 1-2 page summary to Vineeth Rajkumar.

Review process

All grants will be initially assessed by our internal scientific committee to confirm eligibility, adherence to application stipulations and that they fall within our scientific remit. All suitable applications will be sent for external peer review. Shortlisted candidates will be then considered by our research committee at which point the applications will be graded according to peer review, with the highest quality projects being selected.
