Project Title: New funding opportunities with the NIHR Public Health Research Programme
Details: The PHR Programme is now accepting applications to its researcher-led workstream. In addition to applications under the normal remit, we are looking for applications under the following areas:
• Evaluating interventions for health improvement in homeless people
• Evaluating public health interventions by utilising pre-existing data
Applicants are invited to submit proposals on the following topics by 1pm, on 1 April 2014.
Project Title: Programme Grants for Applied Research – invite for proposals
Details: The NIHR Programme Grants for Applied Research programme invites Stage 1 research proposals to develop individual programmes. Research funded through a Programme Grant typically consists of an interrelated group of high quality projects focused on a coherent theme and hence require multidisciplinary approaches, including clinical, health economics, statistics, qualitative and behavioural sciences, to ensure that research objectives can be met. The amount awarded and the length of the funding period will depend on the nature of the proposed work, in particular whether or not the proposal includes a substantial powered trial.
Please note, in addition to usual commissioning arrangements, researchers can apply to the Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) call through this competition.
The closing date for applications is 18 March 2014 at 13:00.

Project Title: Enhancing UK’s Clinical Research Capabilities & Technologies: call for Expressions of interest
Details: MRC, in partnership with the DH, Wellcome Trust, CRUK, BHF, ARUK and Research Councils are seeking expressions of interest from internationally recognised institutions with a proven track record in cutting-edge clinical research. Discussions are also on-going with devolved administrations about the potential for partnership funding.
The overall objectives of this initiative will be to support innovation in clinical research – funding the novel technologies and facilities, which will most effectively advance the UK’s ability to explore new areas in clinical research, and to enhance translational capability and partnerships with industry.
The call will be organised around three themes:
1. Innovative technologies for stratified and experimental medicine (including clinical sensing & imaging and ex vivo analysis).
2. Dementia research. As well as public sector funding for the UK Dementia Platform (Neurodegeneration Programme), partners will consider discrete proposals for other clinical research technology enhancements for dementia and neurodegeneration.
3. Single cell-level functional genomics
Expressions of interest are invited by 7 January 2014 with funding decisions made in July for spend in 2015/16.
