£10,000 funding awards available for Women & Children’s research projects

Child patient being monitored by doctor

The Manchester Academic Health Science Centre (MAHSC) Women & Children’s Research Domain, part of Health Innovation Manchester (HInM), are offering the opportunity to apply for awards to fund cross-discipline, multi-institution, research-led projects that have potential to generate clinical impact and patient benefit.

The projects should focus on topics or specialties allied to Women & Children’s health and research and take into account the specific health needs of the Greater Manchester area, with a view to ongoing impact, publications, and potential for securing definitive funding.

There are multiple awards available with a potential of up to £10,000 per project.

As this funding call follows on from our successful Gynaecology research collaboration workshop and showcase event which took place in January, projects that place a clear emphasis on gynaecology research, its impacts on patients, and clinical developments may be viewed and scored more favourably by the panel.

Projects may include, but are not limited to:

  • Studies to develop pilot data for external grant applications in innovation
  • Projects to develop new technologies or systems
  • Projects to better understand mechanisms in illnesses, or to inform new innovations.

The awards may fund; staff salaries, project running costs, and equipment essential to the study/project and the grant duration is for 1 year.

Applications can be submitted to MAHSC@healthinnovationmanchester.com, or peter.mellor@healthinnovationmanchester.com with a closing date of 12th March 2023.
