MRC Experimental Medicine Challenge Grants
The MRC is pleased to announce the launch of a £10m Experimental Medicine Challenge Grant call, which aims to support innovative programmes of research into disease pathophysiology, using humans as the experimental animal. All proposals must involve an experimental intervention, or “challenge”, in humans and should be sufficiently ambitious and demanding to warrant funding through this scheme rather than through standard research grant support.
MRC/NIHR Methodology Research Panel
The MRC/National Institute of Health Research Methodology Research Panel has issued a highlight notice inviting applications addressing the methodological challenges posed by the stratification of patients. This focuses on biomarker identification and evaluation, trial design, regulatory approvals, health informatics, health economics and public perceptions.
