Internal research funding scheme opens

The competitive internal awards programme to support scientific and clinical brain tumour research projects at the University is now open. The fund has been established thanks to a significant grant made by The Stoneygate Trust.

The Stoneygate Children’s Brain Tumour Research Fund incorporates two grant schemes: the Career Catalyst Awards and the Proof of Concept Awards.

A first call for proposals for both schemes has been issued, with applications invited by Monday 15 August 2016 to support projects led by researchers in any part of the University which aim to deliver a significant advance in the study of children’s brain cancer. This can be in any research discipline, and the Fund has a particular interest in supporting interdisciplinary work which takes an integrative approach towards understanding the causes, treatment and outcomes of childhood brain tumours.

All submissions will be peer-reviewed by an assessment panel comprising senior University academic staff and esteemed external representation.

Detail on both schemes, along with application forms and contact details for queries, is available on The Stoneygate Fund webpage.
