Heart Research UK: Translational Research Project grants

  Wednesday, 01 Jun 2022 | Funding Deadline

Each year, Heart Research UK assesses and selects the best grant applications for research into the prevention, treatment and cure of heart disease. Translational Research Project Grants aim to bring about patient benefit as soon as possible. They aim to bridge the gap between laboratory-based scientific research and patient care.

Heart Research UK particularly welcome applications in two categories:

  • First translational gap: 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. Support research that has a direct and immediate benefit on patient care including diagnostic, prevention and treatment strategies.

Deadline for proposals: 1 June 2022
