Brain Research UK supports translational projects that get to grips with complicated conditions
- These grants are for research in three areas and are not open to neurology researchers in any field.
- Do not shoehorn an out-of-remit idea—such bids always fail.
- The initial application requires clarity and brevity.
- Make sure you have preliminary data, justify your experimental approach and remember to demonstrate project feasibility.
- This year’s competition has a new highlight area: development of experimental models in the charity’s remit.
The charity Brain Research UK has a total of £1 million on offer for its Research Grants, which support translational projects of up to three years’ duration in three areas (dementia is excluded). Each grant can be worth up to £300,000 with capital spending per project capped at £20,000.
