Clinical Academic Research Partnerships open

5th February, 2019

This scheme provides a new flexible route for research-qualified NHS consultants to increase their research skills and experience by engaging with groups and centres of biomedical research excellence, enabling the cross-seeding of perspectives, ideas and connections needed to underpin future translational biomedical research.


Projects are welcome across all areas of the partnering funders’ remits and interests and are open to clinicians in any specialty, including dentistry. Applications may range from basic discovery science to translational and developmental clinical research, and may address research questions from disease-specific mechanistic hypotheses through to research in priority areas such as population health, public health and molecular pathology as outlined in MRC’s strategic plan. Applications addressing global health issues resulting in primary benefit to those living in low and middle income countries (LMIC), or those proposing interdisciplinary approaches are also welcomed. The proposed project should be tailored to the interests of and expertise of the applicant and research partner, and designed to provide a mutually beneficial collaboration for both parties.


The closing date for proposals is 12 March 2019.
