MRC: Experimental medicine grants

  Thursday, 17 Dec 2020 | Funding Deadline

Experimental medicine grants support research into the causes, progression and treatment of human disease through experimental intervention in humans. Proposals should be for academically-led experimental medicine projects, conducted in humans, based around a clearly articulated gap in understanding of human pathophysiology, with a clear path to clinical impact. The grants will produce new mechanistic insights, identifying opportunities to modify disease pathways and enabling novel therapeutic or diagnostic approaches for future development. All disease areas and interventions are welcomed by the panel.

The application must involve an experimental intervention or challenge in humans, perturbing the system to explore disease mechanism. The challenge may be, but is not limited to:

  • pharmacological
  • immunological
  • physiological
  • psychological
  • infectious


Deadline for proposals: 17th December 2020
