Applications are invited for a grant of up to £50,000 for a scientific research project on Crohn’s Disease.
The research question should reflect at least one of the top ten research priorities identified in the James Lind Alliance Priority Setting Partnership on Inflammatory Bowel Disease.
The grant call is open to established investigators, both clinicians and scientists, based at a UK university or hospital. Academic Clinical Lecturers who have a contract of sufficient length to cover the duration of the research project will be considered. This award is not for a fellowship; the principal applicant must have an established academic or clinical position though co-applicants may be fellows. Funding will be available only in the UK.
The maximum allowed budget is £50,000. Only the direct costs associated with the project will be funded; overhead allocation or other indirect costs, including senior or supervisory posts which are already covered by HEFCE or other funding will not be funded; equipment or capital costs will not be funded either. The maximum duration of the projects should be 24 months.
The deadline for applications is 5pm 19 January 2018. The awards will be decided in March/April.
