Heart Research UK: Translational Research project grants

  Tuesday, 01 Jun 2021 | Funding Deadline

Translational Research Project Grants aim to bridge the gap between laboratory-based scientific research and patient care. Heart Research UK welcome applications in two categories:

  • First translational gap: Here we wish to support preclinical studies that apply discoveries generated in the laboratory to studies in humans. These studies should be applied in nature and directed at aetiology or treatments of diseases from the outset, not exploring fundamental mechanisms of biology or disease.
  • Second translational gap: Patient focused studies. Here we wish to support research that has a direct and immediate benefit on patient care including diagnostic, prevention and treatment strategies.

Translational research is dynamic and evolving process to continually improve healthcare and should not stop once the technology is at the patient’s bedside. It can be thought of as taking a scientific breakthrough from ‘laboratory bench to hospital bedside and back’ to be further improved. This may advance current practice or enable innovative discoveries to be transferred into practical tools to prevent, diagnose and treat heart disease.


Deadline for proposals: 1st June 2021
