Potential Joint translational awards from Action Medical Research and LifeArc
Action Medical Research is teaming up with LifeArc to co-fund translational research projects from across the UK focused on children’s rare diseases. This joint fund will be used to support projects that have moved beyond basic understanding of disease mechanism into the development of a product that will benefit a paediatric rare disease patient population. Applications will be considered through the Action Medical Research peer review system.
Potential joint awards from Action Medical Research and Borne
Applications will be considered through the Action Medical Research peer review system for translational research into the causes of preterm birth in order to develop diagnostic, treatment and prevention strategies to reduce the rates of prematurity.
Potential joint awards from Action Medical Research and The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy Charitable Trust
Applications will be considered through the Action Medical Research peer review system for research to help children with brain damage or other mental or physical disability at birth in particular through research into effective physiotherapy treatments and the dissemination of the results to the public.
Applicants who apply in this topic area and whose Principal Investigator or Joint Principal Investigator is a full member of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy are eligible to apply for up to £250,000 (our normal upper limit for grants is £200,000).
Applications that are not eligible for co-funding but meet the remit of Action Medical Research alone will also be considered in this round.
The joint call with LifeArc has a different outline application form with additional questions. Other joint calls use our normal project grant outline application form.
