MRC Clinical Academic Research Partnerships

  Thursday, 29 Oct 2020 | Funding Deadline

This scheme provides a new flexible route for research-qualified healthcare professionals at consultant level or equivalent to increase their research skills and experience by engaging with groups and centres of biomedical and health research excellence, enabling the cross-seeding of perspectives, ideas and connections needed to underpin future translational biomedical and health research.

The scheme provides a mechanism for healthcare professionals at consultant level or equivalent with a PhD, or MD (or equivalent postgraduate qualification) who are not undertaking any substantive research activity but, wish to develop their research interests through collaborative high-quality research partnerships with established leading biomedical and health researchers.

Projects are welcome across all areas of the partnering funders’ remits and interests. Applications may range from basic discovery science to translational and applied health research, and may address research questions from disease-specific mechanistic hypotheses through to research in priority areas such as primary care, population health, public health, mental health, molecular pathology and other areas as outlined in MRC's strategic plan.


Deadline for proposals: 4pm on 29th October 2020
