    Individuals and teams from not-for-profit and commercial organisations can apply. Organisations can be of any size, based anywhere in the world.
    We particularly encourage proposals from multidisciplinary collaborations within or between organisations. These collaborations do not need to include life sciences researchers.
    In your proposal, you must:
  • include researchers from at least two different scientific disciplines
  • include at least one researcher from a discipline outside life sciences, such as (but not limited to) engineering, physical science or data science
  • describe the added value of the collaboration, and tell us why the outcome(s) of your work will be unique and only achievable through this approach.
  • We also encourage partnerships between not-for-profit and commercial organisations.

    We won't consider proposals for:
  • incremental improvements in healthcare
  • ‘blue skies’ or curiosity-driven research
  • back-up or me-too drugs
  • research about the distribution and uptake of healthcare innovations
  • delivering health services
  • public health interventions
  • one-off costs that don’t include key experiments, such as manufacturing a drug substance.
    We don't usually consider proposals for phase III or IV clinical trials for therapeutics or vaccines. If you're proposing this kind of trial, please contact us. We’ll tell you if we want you to apply.
  • Dotació
    Up to £500,000, or up to £750,000 for multidisciplinary collaborations.
    Usually up to 24 months, or up to 36 months for multidisciplinary collaborations.
    You can apply online at any time.
    Shortlisting meetings happen every three months. The next one is in February 2019.
    If you want us to consider your application in February 2019, submit your application by 3 January 2019 (17:00 GMT).
