Dunhill Medical Trust Research Project Grant Scheme
The Dunhill Medical Trust is pleased to announce the latest call for applications to its popular Research Project Grant Scheme
Applications are invited from academics and clinicians from all health professions (including allied health professionals) who wish to undertake a research proposal aimed at improving the understanding of the mechanisms of ageing, the treatment of age-related disease and frailty or identifying and developing new and effective ways to improve the lives of older people.
Applications should be made by the Principal Investigator - PI - (Lead Applicant), as the person responsible for the research. As part of the application process, the PI will be expected to demonstrate that he/she is based in a strong research environment with a suitable skill mix in the research team (with other members of the team being named as Co-Investigators). The Trust does not consider single applicant proposals.
Lead applicants for whom this is a first grant as Principal Investigator will not be precluded, indeed, the Trust wishes to encourage the development of research capacity by providing opportunities for career development. The Trust would, however, expect to see a more experienced researcher as a Co-Investigator with a clear plan for mentoring and support.
Research Project Grants should be completed in a maximum period of three years. The minimum grant available is £25k and the maximum is £300k.
Host institutions for the research project grant should be a recognised university department, teaching hospital or other recognised research centre within the UK.
