For academics, researchers and fellows within NHLI


We are able to support academics, researchers and fellows within the Institute in the following ways: 


Funding opportunities

Grant funding opportunities are emailed out when available. If you would like to be included in emails please contact Alun Owen ( 

  • Grant applications: Assist with the process of making the grant application by providing independent assessment and advice on the application. Advice and assistance can be given where required on completing the applications. 
  • Project management: We are able to provide help with the project management of large applications where needed. For example, liaising with co-applicants where there are large numbers of individuals involved, chasing documents and ensuring that all information is received in advance of deadlines. 
  • Post decision advice: We can offer advice once a decision on the grant applications has been made, whether this is positive or negative. Where the outcome is not as desired we can provide a critical review of the referees comments and may be able to offer advice on refocusing the application for resubmission.

If you are looking for funding to undertake a PhD with a supervisor from the National Heart and Lung Institute, please see our step by step guide on applying.
