£10,000 funding awards available for stroke research

Researchers within Greater Manchester can apply for up to £10,000 in funding to support stroke research.

Health Innovation Manchester, through its Manchester Academic Health Science Centre (MAHSC) Cardiometabolic and Neuroscience domains, is inviting researchers to apply for funding to support a specific piece of research or pilot data collection.

The awards, for NHS and university staff across Greater Manchester, are designed to pump-prime small or pilot research projects intended to drive new and developing research collaborations and result in grant applications. The funding award should be used for a specific piece of research or pilot data collection, with a view to providing a strong basis for an externally funded grant application that must be submitted within the next 6-12 months.

Awards can be used to cover the direct costs of carrying out research, including lab costs, imaging, data and digital costs, and access to research support. Applications that are supported by matched funding from another source are welcome. Applications for clinical PA funding will not be supported via this scheme.

Applicants who have previously been awarded funding by the MAHSC cardiometabolic or neuroscience domain may only apply with a significantly different project.

To apply, download the application below and send via email to Natalie.garratt@srft.nhs.uk, Deadline for submission is Friday 5th March 2021.

Informal enquiries on planned applications can be directed to the domain leads Bernard Keavney (bernard.keavney@manchester.ac.uk) and Stuart Allan (stuart.allan@manchester.ac.uk).

The Neuroscience research domain is delivered by Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust, part of the Northern Care Alliance NHS Group.
