In June 2022, the Manchester Academic Health Science Centre (MAHSC), part of Health Innovation Manchester (HInM), Cardiovascular Research Domain brought together professionals from a range of backgrounds including clinical staff, researchers, and other academics to present a series of talks focusing on Cardiovascular research across the Academic institutions in Greater Manchester.

Following this successful collaboration event and our Step-up funding awards, the MAHSC Cardiovascular Research Domain is offering the opportunity for a PI working in an established research institution or NHS institute in the Greater Manchester Area to apply for awards to fund cross-discipline, multi-institution, research-led projects that have the potential to generate clinical impact and patient benefit.

The projects should focus on cardiovascular disease and take into account the specific health needs of the Greater Manchester area. Approximately £10,000 per project will be available through this funding call and the awards may fund; staff salaries, project running costs, and equipment essential to the study/project.

Projects may include, but are not limited to:

  • Studies to develop pilot data for external grant applications in cardiovascular health
  • Projects to develop new technologies or biomarkers to diagnose and treat cardiovascular disease
  • Projects to better understand mechanisms in cardiovascular disease.

Applications can be submitted to MAHSC@healthinnovationmanchester.com, or peter.mellor@healthinnovationmanchester.com with a closing date of 20th December 2022 and a decision will be made on funding awards in January 2023.
