Healthcare Infection Society: Research Grants

  Tuesday, 01 Sep 2020 | Funding Deadline

The Healthcare Infection Society aims to advance knowledge, foster scientific interest and disseminate information about the prevention and control of healthcare-associated infections. They have over 1,000 members who are experts in the prevention and control of HCAIs, who are drawn largely from the medical profession and are predominantly consultant microbiologists and doctors enrolled on an infection specialty training programme. Nurses, clinical scientists, research scientists and others with a demonstrable professional interest in HCAIs are also a vital part of the membership network.

The following research grant opportunities are available:

  • Major Research Grant: These support work on the subject of healthcare-associated infections and infection prevention and control. This grant would be suitable to support a PhD studentship, MD or other research worker and related consumables/equipment, with a preference towards translational research rather than pure science topics.


  • Small Research Grants: Small research grants are intended to support small-scale research projects, or possibly the costs associated with the visit of an overseas research fellow, up to £10,000 for a project of 12 months duration.

Deadline for proposals: 11:59pm on 1st September 2020
