Researchers within Greater Manchester can apply for £10,000 in funding to support research into cardiovascular disease.

Health Innovation Manchester, through its Manchester Academic Health Science Centre (MAHSC) Cardiovascular Research Domain, is inviting researchers to apply for one of four funding awards.

The awards are designed to fund research-led projects that have potential to generate clinical impact and patient benefit. The projects should focus on cardiovascular disease and its co-morbidities or diabetes, taking into account the specific health needs of the Greater Manchester area.

Projects may include, but are not limited to:

  • Pilot feasibility studies
  • Projects to develop new technologies or biomarkers to diagnose and treat cardiovascular disease
  • Preventative approaches to improve cardiovascular health.

Awards may fund staff salaries, project running costs and equipment essential to the study/project. Applicants should be working in an established research institution or NHS organisation within the Greater Manchester area. Projects must begin by 30 June 2020.

All applications must have the approval of the applicant’s Clinical Director/or Head of Research Centre.

Deadline for submission via email to PMOSupport@healthinnovationmanchester.com (FAO Lorraine Burey), is 15 February 2020.
