DPFS is an ongoing scheme, with outline deadlines every 4 months.
Further details of open and future DPFS deadlines can be found on the submission deadlines page for the scheme.
The DPFS scheme is a key part of our Translational Research Strategy and supports the translation of fundamental discoveries toward benefits to human health. It funds the pre-clinical development and early clinical testing of novel therapeutics, devices and diagnostics, including “repurposing” of existing therapies.
