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

  • 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.

Resources for funding

As part of NHLI commitment to support its community of researchers we revitalized and updated the NHLI research funding and opportunities website. It lists UK funding calls relevant to all researchers in the cardiovascular and respiratory fields as well as more general but appropriate biomedical calls. The website contains funding calls that close this December, January and February but we plan on listing all 2018 funding calls announced soon and to update it regularly.

Details of available Early Career Fellowships can also be found on the Postdoc and Fellows Development Centre webpages.

More information on clinical academic fellowships can be found on the Clinical Academic Training Office webpages.
