Our research is focused on 3 key areas – risk and prevention, screening and diagnosis, and treatment of human disease. Preference will be given to projects that will develop new seedcorn ideas with an ‘out of the box’ approach and a good chance of leading to translational health benefits.
We currently fund projects throughout the UK from basic laboratory research exploring molecular mechanisms of human disease to clinical pilot studies in patients.
We fund researchers at different stages of their careers from PhD Plus to junior group leaders through to more senior investigators with an established track record.
We work with academics, royal colleges, philanthropic organisations and businesses to achieve our goals. To find out more click here.
