Clinical academic research partnerships

This is an opportunity for registered healthcare professionals with an interest in the care and support of older people to develop their research.

Apply for funding to develop your research interests through a collaborative partnership. Your research can focus on any area of MRC’s or NIHR’s remit.

You must:

  • be a registered healthcare professional
  • have a PhD, MD or equivalent
  • be working at a senior level with specialised knowledge and demonstrable capacity for professional independence and leadership
  • have a research partner based at an eligible research organisation

We will fund 20% to 50% of your salary and project costs for one to five years. We will fund 80% of the full economic cost (FEC).

This is an ongoing funding opportunity and the application round closes every November.
