We fund only the highest quality research using a rigorous peer review process to determine the most relevant, important and worthy research.

We are members of the Association of Medical Research Council (AMRC) and adhere to their processes and guidance to ensure our funding and management of our research priorities are transparent and rigorous.

Annually, we make several calls which are advertised via the website and through networks of academic institutions, our NHS partners and clinical research collaborators.

Our calls are streamed reflecting our research strategy priorities. These streams are developed with individual criteria and researchers should read and adhere to the relevant application guidance and criteria advertised with the individual stream.
