About our research

About our research

University of Manchester

We fund new ideas either in basic science that will generate further funding from major funders or translational research that will lead to major advances in medical treatment.

We support researchers who think ‘out of the box’ with a good chance of success. We fund PhD studentships, seedcorn grants, project grants and early career fellowships.
